See http://sales.mcicoach.com/preowned%5Cpcoach.nsf/(SearchResults)/?SearchView&Query=(%5BShowInternet%5D+=+Yes+AND+%5BMakeModel%5D+=+Dupont+96D)&Start=1&Count=10&SearchOrder=1&SearchMax=400

It says it is a Dupont 96D.  Never heard of this brand, but it looks kinda like an MCI.  It appears to be shorter than a 40 footer yet it has a tag axle.  Strange.

I looked at the picture again and realized the bus in the picture is an MCI!  I am guessing they included the wrong picture.

Fwiw DuPont is a re builder of MCI coaches in Quebec sold to shuttle services there are 2 here in Bullhead nice looking buses but you never know what model they started from the ones here are MCI 9's.
The model D29 is a 29 passenger including the driver




good luck

Dupont used to be the go to place for service in Quebec City.

However with the de-regulation of the bus industry back some time ago now in Quebec(wow, decade or???), Dupont gave up their fleet, and I understand that even the service might be gone now?

They were focusing on heavy rebuild work, they are great people.

happy coaching!
