Motor Coach Industries (MCI) recently delivered seven new coaches to Bloomer, Wis.-based Blackhawk Express and Boston-based Cavalier Coach Trailways.

Blackhawk’s coaches – three J4500s, including two Anniversary Editions, and two D4005s – bring the company’s all-MCI fleet to 15 coaches. The new 40-foot D4005s, which Blackhawk plans to use for a variety of services, such as its recent fall color tour of New England, are equipped with Cummins engines and ZF Astronic transmissions.

Meanwhile, Cavalier’s new D4505s are also equipped with Cummins engines and Allison transmissions and use Ultra Low Sulfur fuel to reduce emissions. The Boston-based operator has several contracts providing shuttle services between campuses for several colleges and schools in the area.
