ABC Companies recently completed a major bus overhaul contract for OmniRide, the operating name for the mobility services offered by the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC), which is headquartered in Woodbridge, Va.

OmniRide operates Express and Local bus services in neighborhoods surrounded by the busy I-95 and I-66 corridors, and in 2018, had more than 150 buses in its active fleet making over 2.5 million passenger trips. ABC Companies completed an earlier contract with the company, having successfully restored 65 vehicles for OmniRide/PRTC in 2015.

On this most recent project, ABC was selected via OmniRide’s extensive RFP bid process in 2017. The scope of work to be completed encompassed a full overhaul of 23 MCI D4500, model year 2008/2009 buses. The contract was managed, coordinated, and conducted at ABC Companies Winter Garden, Fla. facility over a two-year period. From structural repairs and exterior paint and graphics, to electrical, mechanical, and interior restoration, the project refurbished the vehicles to extend their fleet life.

Throughout the project, strict quality guidelines were followed in order to meet or exceed quality standards. An in-house inspector contracted by OmniRide conducted on-site inspections at the ABC Florida facility on a daily basis throughout the entire project. ABC’s Service Department utilized high-tech equipment throughout the restoration including for example; laser alignment technology, which compensates for environmental variances and ensures proper axle alignment by greatly reducing the margin for error.
