Riverside, CA – Complete Coach Works is proud to announce a contract to perform repairs to the corrosion and structural failures on a portion of RTD’s fleet of MCI Model 102DL3 coaches.
These coaches are averaging over 800,000 miles of service life with some reaching a million miles. RTD desires to keep these coaches in service for several more years.
