MCI® CNG COMMUTER COACH

Powered By Clean-Engine Technology

When it comes to alternative fuel choices, the MCI® CNG Commuter Coach is one of the best environmental ideas on the road. With a reputation for workhorse reliability, MCI is the only coach builder to offer an Altoona-tested and Buy America compliant CNG coach to major transit properties, with a CNG track record that dates back to 1999.

Engineered to provide a comfortable, safe ride at highway speeds, with a strong, rugged semi-monocoque structure, the MCI CNG Commuter Coach offers exceptionally low carbon dioxide emissions and potentially lower fuel costs, while helping to increase public transit's energy independence in a highly visible way. Because CNG is abundantly produced in North America, your organization can feel good about supporting domestic energy production.

CNG vehicles also offer significant lifecycle savings. According to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center, natural gas vehicles offer lower operating and maintenance costs; many fleets report 15 percent to 28 percent savings compared with diesel fleets.
