BCT Adds 30 MCI Coaches to Express Service

Broward County Transit (BCT), Fort Lauderdale, FL, is preparing to introduce 30 MCI Commuter Coaches from Motor Coach Industries to service on express bus routes to Miami-Dade County the agency operates in partnership with Florida DOT, along with 14 coaches already in service.

“Our first MCI coaches raised the bar with our ridership, and our goal is to meet existing customers’ expectations and attract new customers,” said Barney McCoy, director of service and capital planning for BCT. “We’ll now have uniformity in our Express Bus Service fleet and a higher-quality service across the board.”

Amenities on board the new commuter buses include Wi-Fi, high-back seats, LED reading lights, power outlets, pullout bike storage trays and wheelchair lifts.

Tom Wagner, MCI vice president, public sector sales, said, “We’re pleased the MCI Commuter Coach has proven to be a good fit for Broward’s operations and popular with its ridership. The Commuter Coach is the leading vehicle of choice for growing long-distance route systems like Broward’s managed-lane network. Passengers can relax or work comfortably on board, and we’re helping many communities rethink commuting by car—after all, one fully occupied coach can take 55 cars off the road.”
