Riverside, CA – Complete Coach Works announced today that they have been awarded a 57 bus rehab by the Metropolitan Bus Authority (AMA) of Puerto Rico. This mid-life bus rehab includes a complete repower of the propulsion system which will give these buses a renewed life and will continually provide reliable transportation to the residents of Puerto Rico.
By mobilizing CCW’s specialized rehab process and key management personnel, the buses are able to remain on the island of Puerto Rico without incurring excessive shipping charges and an additional delay time of 20 days per bus. Using local workforce, over 100 new jobs will be created in Puerto Rico, furthermore, CCW will align with local vendors who will provide high quality parts, services and warranty support for the duration of the rehab. Utilizing these two local resources Complete Coach Works participation on this project will infuse millions of dollars back into Puerto Rico’s economy from funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
“Complete Coach Works is honored to have been awarded this contract from Puerto Rico, and we look forward to building a long and successful relationship with the Metropolitan Bus Authority, as well as other agencies that may need our rehab and remanufacturing services,” said Macy Neshati, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Complete Coach Works.
