MCI delivers 30 coaches to Martz Group

Posted on February 14, 2008

Celebrating its 100th anniversary, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.-based Martz Group purchased 15 J4500 and 15 D4505 coaches from MCI. Deliveries are expected to begin this month.  


Martz’ new MCI coaches are high-capacity with seating by Amaya evenly spaced to offer riders more leg room. Additional features include Ayses destination signs and REI entertainment systems. More than half of the new coaches are wheelchair lift equipped. 


The new models are also equipped with Cat C-13 and ZF AS tronic powertrains and the first in the fleet to feature the low-emission technology that reduces particulate matter by 90 percent. The latest addition helps Martz on its quest to reduce the age of its fleet to an average of five years.
