Interior layout of 701-707.

Metro Transit buses 701-714 were MCI/Nova Bus TC60-102N articulated Classic models. Metro Transit was the last agency to still run this model of bus, and only one of two that ever ordered it.

For the MCI buses, the company logo was located above the right front headlight rather than in the centre of the vehicle's front end. The 1992 series had double-width rear exits; the 1993 series had regular-width rear exits, resulting in a slight increase in seating capacity.

In later years, they were most commonly seen on route 10, but were also frequently used on routes 20 and 80. Occasionally, they were used on routes 21, 33, 59, and 84.

The remaining buses in these series were mass-retired in December 2012 and January 2013, after the arrival of 20 new Nova Bus LFS Artics.
