The MCIs can do up to 60 mph...and in some instances even more. The fastest I was ever on was 64 mph and was #3207 (back when it was at Spring Creek)

That depends on the garage said MCI is at. Some are governed at 45, some can do 60, and some are wide open.

 

You gotta be kidding? No MCI buses governed at 45 cruising on 55 or 65 speed limit highway. Thats dangerous. All of the MCI buses should be governed above 55 mph. Ive seen MTA's MCI operate speed as high as 70 mph on Staten Island Expressway HOV lane.

You notice I said

some, depending on the garage
. I've been on plenty of MCI's that never went above 45, and plenty that hit 70. Yukon and Ulmer Park had buses that were capped at 45.

Why are you making this stuff up? No MCI buses are capped at 45.

Bus 1864 was capped at 45 when transferred from MJQ as well as other 1800s and 1900s that came from MJQ to MTA Bus.

Is it true that governor in them can only Go 40 mph ?

 

I don't know of any that is governed below 55 mph (except for maybe a handful); most should be wide open to 62-70.

 

BTW, I was on 1927 on the Long Island Expressway once heading to Port Jefferson (when it was assigned to Mitchel Field); it didn't seem that fast.
