The New Jersey Transit Authority maintains a fleet of over 3000 buses. In order
to keep a fleet that size, you need to have a preventive maintenance program.
One of the best things about an MC 9 From this organization is the fact you're assured
that it had been well maintained. Another one of their biggest points is that
all MCI buses were kept indoors when not in use. They had a program of rinsing
their buses underneath during the winter so as to keep corrosive materials to a bare
WHAT EXACTLY ARE TRANSIT BUSES OR CITY BUSES?
If you're shopping for a used coach to convert, one of the least
popular buses to buy would be a city bus or a transit bus. The reason is that
these buses are designed to carry people from one block to the next block and so
on. All day long they stop, go, stop, go. Therefore this type of bus is designed
specifically for this application. You will not have any luggage bays but you
will have a very heavy chassis with a very heavy suspension and a heavy braking
system. For this reason, as a rule, transit buses do not make a good custom RV motor
home bus conversion.
However, there are exceptions to rules. And one of the best exceptions would be
a MCI 9 Bus from NJ Transit , and here's why:
These Coaches are never used like transit buses. NJ Transit covers a
very large area. They have a tremendous volume of passengers coming from the
suburbs into the city. Therefore, their choice of their suburban passenger
buses has become a special-built MC 9 touring coach. They take a standard
MCI 9, modify the front cap for their marquee and replace the entrance door
with a bi-fold door. They also modify the brakes and wheels to be heavier.
Other than that, it's a standard built MCI 9. However, the NJ Transit system
of maintenance has been such a proven system that in most cases a NJ Transit
MC 9 for a given year quite often is in better condition than another MCI 9
of the same year.
The only negative that we've seen by purchasing an NJ Transit
bus is that these buses were designed specifically by MCI for NJ Transit needs.
The front entrance door is a bi-fold door, and the front marquee cap over the windshield is
an unusual design. Other than that, the MCI 9 NJT chassis is comparably a little
better chassis. They even have an improved windshield mounting design which
is actually better appealing then the Standard MCI 9 Fiberglass mounting.

Whenever you buy a used bus, most bus dealers offer that coach
"as is, where is". We want to offer the do-it-yourselfer a little
security. Our plans have been to find a good chassis that may need a little
work in the drive-train or in other areas. We then repair this work so as to
make a good running coach.
We are proud to announce that if you purchase a bus from us and
have us work on that coach (i.e. raise roof, add extension, blank out sides,
etc.), we will offer you a warranty that this coach will be in good operating
condition based upon our knowledge and experience. Of course, anything we
install new (i.e. motor, transmission, rear-end, etc.) comes with full
Some people will find a super deal on an NJ Transit bus, even though they bought it on having to replace the door and cap, they still
don't have a warranty.
