The Motor Coach Industries D4000CT is a commuter and charter motorcoach available in Canada and the United States. In 2005, MCI redesigned their D-Series coach. The D4000CT inherited the headlights from the G-Series and is available with optional flush-mounted passenger windows. Fluted stainless steel sides are also an option.

Design Changes

Coaches meeting the EPA 2007 and 2010 standards sport a redesigned rear end incorporating changes to the engine cooling system for each emission standard. Coaches meeting the EPA 2010 standards are also equipped with a selective catalytic reduction system that includes a 15 gallon diesel exhaust fluid tank.[1]

Alternative propulsion

In April 2010, MCI began touring a CNG-powered commuter coach. The coach was leased from New Jersey Transit and updated with a newer 8.3 litre Cummins CNG engine. In addition, a new coach was built with an 8.9 litre EPA 2010-compliant Cummins CNG engine and shown to multiple transit agencies. MCI wanted to gauge the market for the coach and show off the benefits of CNG.[2] The tour ended a few moths later, and in October, MCI announced a CNG power option will be available on 2011 coaches.[3]
