MTS adding 24 MCI D4500s Commuter Coaches

The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) ordered 24 MCI D4500 Commuter Coaches powered by natural gas.

MTS is decreasing its fleet emissions with the purchase of CNG-powered MCI Commuter Coaches, which will replace 12-year old diesel intercity buses on commuter express routes operating between downtown San Diego and suburbs.

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and Buy America compliant, MTS’ newest Commuter Coaches come equipped with wheelchair lifts and feature the newest safety technologies including three-point passenger seatbelts, back up cameras and onboard nine camera surveillance systems. Each new coach is also powered by the Low NOx Cummins ISX12N natural gas engine, certified to the California Air Resources Board, along with having 90% fewer NOx emissions than the current North American EPA standard.

The buses will help RTS achieve its vision of being the innovative mobility choice, while providing a more customer focused transit experience.

N.Y.'s RTS orders 10 40-foot New Flyer zero-emission buses

The Regional Transit Service Inc. (RTS) in Rochester, N.Y., awarded New Flyer a contract for 10 40-foot, zero-emission, battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE™ heavy-duty transit buses, with an option to purchase up to 20 additional buses over the five-year term of the contract.

The buses will help RTS achieve its vision of being the innovative mobility choice, while providing a more customer focused transit experience. With no tailpipe emissions, the Xcelsior CHARGE™ buses will commence a more efficient chapter of mobility for the greater Rochester area.

Since 1999, New Flyer has delivered over 240 heavy-duty transit buses to RTS in addition to coaches delivered by MCI, another NFI subsidiary. There are currently more than 1,500 New Flyer buses in-service in New York State, and this order represents the third zero-emission bus program in New York to add battery-electric buses from New Flyer.
