 NJ TRANSIT awards MCI 2nd Year of 6-year contract for 185 Commuter Coaches

Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries,  the largest transit bus and motor coach manufacturer and parts distributor in North America, announced today that NJ TRANSIT issued a notice-to-proceed for the second year of its six year contract to manufacture and deliver 185 commuter coaches for an approximate total value of $92 million.

While the contract was suspended for nearly three months awaiting the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund to be resolved, MCI was able to adjust production schedules and successfully deliver 96 commuter coaches to NJ TRANSIT in 2016. MCI delivered all year one deliveries of 187 commuter coaches by the end of the first quarter 2017 and will commence delivery of year two coaches starting in the third quarter 2017.

The MCI Commuter Coaches are powered by clean diesel which has exhaust emissions reduced as required by the latest Clean Air Act amendments and features a 57-seat configuration that is Wi-Fi ready, seatbelt-equipped and compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

NJ TRANSIT is the third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit in the United States, linking major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia. The agency operates a fleet of more than 2,200 buses covering some 255 routes.  With its full complement of buses, trains and light rail vehicles, NJ TRANSIT completes over 277 million passenger trips each year.  NJ TRANSIT has purchased over 2,000 coaches over three decades from MCI, including 147 compressed natural gas (CNG) models in 2015.
