CCW Completes City of Sandy Bus Remanufacture Purchased Through the Oregon Statewide Contract

June 23, 2022

Complete Coach Works (CCW), a bus remanufacturer, has delivered the Sandy Area Metro’s (City of Sandy) first fully refurbished 2008 35-foot Gillig diesel transit bus. The project marks Sandy’s first bus remanufacture purchased through CCW’s Oregon statewide contract.

The project was completed at CCW headquarters in Riverside, CA. CCW equipped the bus with a clean-diesel Cummins ISL Recon engine and rebuilt Voith transmission. CCW then installed a new driver seat and flooring, interior and exterior LED lighting, and an ADA-compliant wheelchair ramp. The bus was painted and decaled to the City of Sandy’s specifications.

“We are honored to have worked with the City of Sandy through our Oregon statewide contract,” said Jim Paul, Regional Sales Manager of CCW. “Contracts like these help cities and agencies procure rebuilds on buses that have yet to reach maximum service life or to add remanufactured buses to fleets allowing them to meet service demands and route expansions. It is our goal to make the procurement process and bus refurbishment more convenient and cost-effective for our customers.”

The City of Sandy made the decision to purchase the remanufactured bus to strive for excellent customer service and reduce maintenance costs. The vehicle is designed to provide long-term service and riding comfort to the widest possible spectrum of passengers, including children, adults, the elderly, and people with disabilities.

“Passenger safety and comfort, the well-being of drivers, and the reliability of transit service are our highest priorities,” states Andi Howell, Transit Director, City of Sandy. “Remanufactured buses maintain the vital, robust components from the OEM construction, improve the vehicle’s operational performance, and extend service life, while helping our system save money and reduce downtime."
