[IMAGE]Classic-Charter-1-09-emailfull.jpg[/IMAGE] ABC Companies recently delivered a new, 81-passenger TD925 Van Hool Double Deck coach to Classic Charter, of Visalia, Calif., and to Salt Lake City-based Le Bus.

Both coaches are powered by Cummins ISM 450 HP engines coupled to Allison Gen IV automatic transmissions, and are equipped with multi-monitor DVD systems, and reclining seats with foot rests and seat belts.

Founded in 1985 by Les Riddington with two used buses, Classic Charter now operates 32 full size coaches with the second generation behind the wheel.

Le Bus is descended from Rock Springs-Jackson Bus Lines, founded in 1949 by Mike and Marjorie Zanetti in Rock Springs, Wyo., and has grown to more than 130 coaches.
