CCW lands CARTA refurb contract

Complete Coach Works (CCW) was awarded a contract from Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) to supply four refurbished 35-ft GILLIG diesel buses.

The buses will be equipped with Cummins ReCon ISL engines and rebuilt Voith transmissions. Other CCW upgrades include interior/exterior LED lightning, new driver seats, new flooring, and ADA compliant wheelchair ramps.

Additional work includes new brakes and suspensions, steering components, and LED destination signs. Once work is completed, a fresh new paint job and decals will provide the finishing touches.

New Flyer to deliver additional 110 buses for WMATA

New Flyer of America Inc. announced three new orders from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) for a total of 25 40-foot Xcelsior® clean-diesel buses, 75 40-foot Xcelsior compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, and 10 60-foot articulated Xcelsior clean-diesel buses. The order converts 110 buses from the option backlog to firm orders.

The new order replaces older, end-of-life vehicles and delivers on WMATA’s plan to improve transit service and reliability, while also increasing efficiency and sustainable mobility for residents in the capital region. In addition, the articulated buses deliver higher passenger capacity, allowing WMATA to move up to 115 passengers per bus along its busiest routes. New Flyer has delivered nearly 1,400 buses to WMATA since 2001, including electric hybrids, zero-emission battery-electric, and low-emission CNGs.
