MCI® D45 CRT LE COACH



Newly reimagined, the MCI® D45 CRT LE commuter coach warmly welcomes all passengers, creating an innovative low-entry vestibule with a ramp and adjoining seating area designed with mobility devices in mind. Beyond game-changing accessibility features to speed entry and exit, the all-new model offers modern good looks and the amenities that commuters have come to expect from MCI, including comfortable forward-facing seats, power outlets, parcel racks and Wi-Fi options, plus the sturdy reliability that has long made the MCI commuter coach the leading choice for commuter express. And, with an electric version available starting in 2020, the D45 CRT LE will be the greenest choice for communities.
