Coach America purchases 100 MCI D4505s, J4500s

Posted on January 28, 2009

[IMAGE]Coach-AmericaMCIJan30Full.jpg[/IMAGE] Coach America plans to purchase both MCI D4505 and MCI J4500 models to fulfill 2009 equipment upgrades across the U.S.

 

The new coaches will be used in a number of Coach America operations, including its Crew Transport division, which provides employee transportation to several industries, including rail, mining, oil and gas, airlines and construction.   

 

MCI has already delivered 24 MCI D4505 coaches to Coach America’s Gillette, Wyo., location. Coach America will use the new coaches, the first D4505 models MCI has equipped with three-point seatbelts, for certain employee-transportation contracts. The new D4505s, equipped with Cummins engines and Allison transmissions, feature seatbelt-compatible Amaya seats. While there are currently no regulations requiring seatbelts in passenger coaches, Coach America ordered the option to respond to a customer request.
