Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a U.S. subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., began delivering Commuter Coaches to NJ TRANSIT in year three of a six-year contract with one of the nation’s largest public transit agencies.

The MCI Commuter Coaches are powered by clean diesel, which reduces exhaust emissions as required by the latest Clean Air Act amendments. They also feature a 57-seat configuration that is seatbelt-equipped and ADA-compliant.  

In July 2015, MCI and NJ TRANSIT signed a public transit contract for 772 new commuter coaches, followed by board authorization increases on options for a total potential quantity of 1,222 coaches over six years. MCI completed 374 deliveries to NJ TRANSIT between Jan. 1, 2016 and Oct. 1, 2018, and 17 new models were delivered in October.

Altogether, NJ TRANSIT has purchased over 2,000 coaches over three decades from MCI, including 147 compressed natural gas models in 2015.
