MCI delivers first Commuter Coach to Broward County

Posted on February 20, 2015

Pompano Beach, Fla.’s Broward County Transit (BCT) introduced one of five new MCI Commuter Coaches that will serve its express routes to Miami-Dade County starting this spring, with the agency ordering another nine coaches that are expected to go into service by this fall.

The new coaches feature comfortable high-back seats, LED reading lights, electrical outlets, Wi-Fi, pullout bike storage trays and wheelchair lifts. Designed for higher speeds, the Buy-America-compliant, Altoona-tested MCI Commuter Coach uses a high-floor design that raises passengers and the driver above traffic, along with a long-travel suspension for a smooth ride.

It also offers safety features including Electronic Stability Control, tire pressure monitoring and fire suppression, plus a clean-diesel engine for near-zero emissions.

MCI’s Commuter Coach has earned its leadership position in express transit service by offering low ownership cost; a lower per-seat cost with 42% more seating capacity than a typical 40-foot transit bus; and an excellent mean distance between failures, with the fewest failures per vehicle among all bus types.
