MCI delivers milestone J4500 to Riteway

Posted on September 8, 2008

 [IMAGE]Riteway9-.jpg[/IMAGE] MCI delivered the 5,000th unit off the E4500 and J4500 assembly line at its Winnipeg plant to Riteway Bus Service in Richfield, Wis.

Equipped with a Cummins engine and ZF Astronic transmission, Riteway’s new J4500 features new engine technology mandated by the EPA, which
relies on a diesel particulate filter and the use of ultra low sulfur fuel to lower particulate matter by 90 percent.

The coach also includes several amenities, including LCD flat-screen video monitors, DVD player, plush reclining seating, scenery-sized windows, individual overhead reading lights and airflow controls.

Riteway, which operates 18 J4500s in its fleet of 32 motorcoaches, provides services to the greater Milwaukee and Midwest areas, estimating that its coaches travel more than 1.9 million miles annually.
