CCW lands contract to convert 3 Calif. buses to all-electric

Posted on July 26, 2018

Complete Coach Works (CCW) was awarded a contract by Calif.’s Montebello Bus Lines (MBL) for the electrification and rehabilitation of three New Flyer buses.

The economy’s shift toward sustainability has influenced MBL’s decision to remove its gas-hybrid system and convert to Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) buses. The process of remanufacturing improves the service life of the bus and avoids material waste, resulting in operational savings that benefit the environment.

“We are looking forward to our first all-electric buses. We believe this is going to be a positive first step toward the next-generation of our vehicles moving forward,” said MBL’s Director of Transportation Tom Barrio.

When completed, MBL’s remanufactured buses will include new CCW ZEPS electric-drive systems, composite floorings and light weight seating, electric air compressors and power steering pumps, electric HVAC systems, all LED interior and exterior lighting, paint/graphics, suspension, steering components, and brakes.
