[IMAGE]LewisStages.jpg[/IMAGE]Autobus Brissette, a tour, charter and school bus operator based in Berthierville, Quebec, took delivery of its very first MCI J4500, while Salt Lake City-based Lewis Stages added three new J4500s.

Brissette's new J4500 is equipped with a Cummins engine and Allison transmission and features a signature spiral entryway, scenery size windows and a state-of-art entertainment system by Blaupunkt.

Powered by a Cummins engine and ZF Astronic transmission, Lewis' three newest 2009 J4500s, delivered in June, come with a custom-designed interior and the latest passenger-pleasing amenities. The colors and fabric used throughout the cabin create a relaxing atmosphere in which passengers enjoy a state-of-the-art Blaunpunkt entertainment system with 15-inch video monitors, access to outlets to recharge personal electronics, and individual air-flow controls and reading lights.

Over the past three years, Lewis has taken delivery of five MCI J4500 coaches, a D4505 and several newer, pre-owned E4500 coaches.
