GO Transit 1520-1531 were MCI 102C3 buses built in 1993 and acquired from Antelope Valley Bus Company in 1998. As these buses were originally used in the United States, displays such as the speedometer and cabin temperature display used the imperial system of measurement. All buses in this series were refurbished in 2004 by Mississauga Truck & Bus.

All models are 40 feet in length with seating for 47 individuals. They are not wheelchair accessible. The buses were built with washrooms which were locked to the public by GO Transit. As these were built for Antelope Valley, they have features that differ from GO's other MCIs. These buses have a grey and blue interior color scheme. Unlike other GO Transit buses that have a door control switch to the left-side of the driver, the switch is located on the right side near the fare calculator. Windshield fluid is dispensed from the windshield wiper device itself instead of from below the window as on GO Transit's other MCIs. As well, 1520-1531 have minimal window tint. These buses were the only buses in GO Transit operation that did not have a standard top front destination sign. Instead, the destination sign is a small sign located above the driver at the top of the window.

After delivery and deployment of 2354-2365 and 8000-8011, buses in this series were retired during the last week of April 2008. They were sent to Newmarket GO Garage during the retirement phase. There, GO logos were painted over in May 2008. They were removed from Newmarket's garage at the beginning of June. Five months after retirement, one of the buses from this series remained at Newmarket GO Garage (likely 1530, which was donated to Centennial College) until the beginning of November 2008. All the buses in this series have been sold to new operators or "dealers" such at Mississauga Truck & Bus for resale.
