Coast Mountain Bus Company 12001-12025
Coast Mountain Bus Company 12001–12025 are a batch of 25 New Flyer XDE60 units built in 2012–2013. These units were CMBC's first Xcelsiors, the first units to feature frameless windows, the first local units with air conditioning, and the last buses delivered fitted with air powered doors. These units are also the only New Flyer Xcelsior units in the Coast Mountain Bus Company fleet to not be delivered in the "Charcoal" livery and instead in the grey Sweep Restyled livery.
Compared to other units in the fleet, the stop request buttons are unusually large and not consistent with TransLink's policy of having stanchion-mounted buttons being recessed in design to avoid accidental pressing. When delivered, these units had a different style of touch bars at the rear doors that were thin and more sensitive than traditional bars. They were later replaced by traditional old-style bars due to constant malfunction and damage due to misuse by passengers. Unlike other Xcelsior units in the Coast Mountain Bus Company fleet, all passenger windows can be opened.
This was the first order to be delivered with CCTV cameras pre-installed. Compass Card readers were partially pre-installed with the reader bracket. The full reader unit was installed in late 2013 on all units.
Unlike other batches, these buses have dual seats in the front as opposed to single seats between the priority section and the row in front of the wheel well.
Starting in September 2019, driver barriers were installed with installation completed on all units in November 2019. Starting in mid-December 2019, the headlight assemblies on all units are gradually being upgraded to newer all-LED assemblies.
