The contract for the coaches will last between two or three years. The overhaul work includes replacing and reconditioning the coaches trucks, couplers, HVAC systems, electrical systems, batteries and battery chargers, some interior fixtures and safety-emergency equipment. The MBTA has yet to release which coaches will be sent out to New York first.
