Low-Entry Vestibule:
First-of-its-kind design for increased accessibility

MCI offers the manual Q-Straint wheelchair securement system as standard, and the automated Quantum as an option for the rear facing position on the right of the vestibule.

Following rigorous analysis and testing, our low-entry, mid-door vestibule concept emerged the winner from among 32 designs.

MCI’s design engineers worked closely with Designworks, A BMW Group Company, and several advocacy organizations to develop the D45 CRT LE.

Technological advances and styling improvements, along with passengers’ and operators’ requirements have inspired a complete redesign of MCI’s commuter coach, the industry’s number-one choice for commuter service.
It’s the first new D-Series commuter coach in 25 years. Long recognized for passenger comfort and proven reliability, the MCI commuter coach has the best mean distance between failure rate (MDBF) compared with our competitors.
It also represents MCI’s vision for the future of public transit. The new D45 CRT LE was designed with changing passenger demographics in mind. As some riders give up their cars or avoid buying automobiles altogether, the need for accessible mass transit has never been greater. The MCI D45 CRT LE commuter coach provides an efficient, comfortable response to this demographic evolution with innovative features:
• Second door
• Boarding times comparable to low floor transit
• Low-entry vestibule with five seats
• Modern design
• Seats 54 passengers
• ADA and Buy America compliant
• Seats 52 with two mobility devices
The breakthrough low-entry vestibule design offers unprecedented ease of entry and exit, and a new standard of comfort. The new model provides everything your system will need to serve your passengers, especially those with specific mobility needs

Extra-mile style

The MCI D45 CRT LE delivers a stunning silhouette with two points of entry and exit, panoramic frameless windows and a refashioned front and rear end. An optional rear window adds extra visibility and natural light to the cabin. Still, what passengers will appreciate most are the interior’s ergonomic achievements.

Extra-mile style

The addition of MCI’s trademark spiral stairway at the front entry point and increased door width opens up the aisle and places the fare box closer to the driver’s dash for better clearance. This allows passengers to get on and off more quickly. For safety and comfort, MCI includes sturdy stainless steel grab rails and illumination on step nosing.
