RIVERSIDE, CA — Complete Coach Works (CCW) is pleased to announce it has finished the repainting of 56 of Foothill Transit’s buses. The San Gabriel Valley based transit agency engaged the services of CCW in rebranding 56 of their older buses with their new livery to showcase the agency’s commitment to the environment and sustainable operations.
Kevin O’Brien, Project Manager for CCW, said Foothill is “rebranding their fleet with more vibrant colors and graphics. They’re really happy with the project and impressed with the quality of the paint.”
The 42-foot-long CNG buses were previously wrapped with graphics and the agency chose to move forward with painted graphics. The new paint has a 92 gloss factor, which gives it a much brighter shine.
“The previous logo featured three stripes in three shades of blue that rose into three peaks in the center – a nod to the agency’s proximity to the San Gabriel Mountains,” said Roland Cordero, Director of Maintenance and Vehicle Technology at Foothill Transit. “The painted livery is more vibrant and has a clear coat, creating a nice sheen to it.”
The new design is a wave of bright blue and lime green that swoops along the side of the white buses, with blue peaks that rise up at the vehicles’ mid-point.
Cordero said he is pleased with CCW’s paint and mechanic expertise. He concluded, “The new design incorporates our commitment to sustainability and being green.”
