Mci : Apta 2011

Recommended Posts

SCHAUMBURG, IL — Motor Coach Industries' Booth 1333 at APTA EXPO 2011 will be the destination for transit officials and operators who want to offer commuters the best in technology, environmental performance, comfort and safety.

 

It'll be a beautiful place to take a break, too.

 

Designed with the look and feel of a New Orleans park, MCI's space at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will be the place to be to mark the 30th anniversary of American Public Transportation Association APTA EXPO, public transportation's premier showcase of equipment, technology and new ideas. The EXPO will run October 3-5, concurrent with the APTA annual meeting October 2-5.

 

"MCI was a founding exhibitor at this show back in 1981, and we're very proud to return this year with some very interesting new products and technologies," said Tom Wagner, Director of Business Development for MCI Public Sector. "Its a particularly fascinating time in public transit — ridership is growing, and a new generation of commuters have high expectations for comfort, safety and a concern for the environment. MCI is in a unique place to provide the best solutions for this growing market."

 

Here's what you'll find at MCI during APTA EXPO' 11

Nice MCI. Those things would fit in perfectly on (NJT) Howell and Egg Harbor routes.

 

Anybody going to the APTA Expo this year?

How did that Ghost Demo do for MTA??And will this bus ever see A MTA Depot?

 

They say it was great, and some should be coming next year. Last I heard the order was pushed back. I'll get an update on the new orders next week.

Yep.

 

Likely not. It'll be transit-spec of course.

 

It's transit spec'd. That's the one that will be at APTA. However, don't know if those wheel well flairs will be on any actual transit sepc'd buses. But we will have to wait and see!

IIRC it is the same one. I can double check though.
