MCI TO DELIVER 84 CNG COM- MUTER COACHES TO NJ TRANSIT DES PLAINES, Ill. — MCI announced that NJ TRANSIT has awarded it a contract for 84 natural-gas-fueled MCI Commuter Coaches with wheelchair lifts. The new CNG coaches will replace coaches that have each logged more than a half a million miles. Delivery will begin in late 2014. As the f rst U.S. agency to pur- chase CNG MCI Commuter Coaches, NJ TRANSIT took delivery of 50 of the CNG coaches in 1999 as part of a pilot program, and ordered an additional 27 CNG units the following year. Over the last three decades, MCI has supplied more than 2,350 Commuter Coaches to NJ TRANSIT, which was one of the f rst agencies to use the coach to extend its reach into outlying city and suburban areas to better serve the state's commuter population. "MCI greatly values NJ TRANSIT and its mission to provide its ridership comfort, dependability and energy alternatives for a greener future," said PATRICK SCULLY, MCI executive vice president of sales and marketing. NJ TRANSIT is the nation's third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit, link- ing major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia. The agency operates a f eet of 2,027 buses, 711 trains and 45 light rail vehicles, providing nearly 223 million passen- ger trips each year. The MCI CNG Commuter Coach offers exceptionally low carbon di- oxide emissions and lower fuel costs, while supporting domestic energy production.
