Additionally, 8012 and the 1790 series have Allison B400R propulsions. The 1790 series have 37 seats, with a revised layout on the low floor portion of the bus.

Here are a few edits/additions to twin cities metro area pages:

Plymouth Metrolink 2600-2610 have a suburban door layout - 1 door only.

60000 - 60014 also have one door only, and seat 43. 

SW Transit 473 and 710 are unknown MCI Coach buses, I saw them today and they’re not in the roster.

Likewise with MVTA 4776.
