MCI delivers J4500s to Toronto

Posted on October 23, 2009

Can-ar Coach Service, operating throughout the greater Toronto area, took delivery of two new MCI J4500 coaches. At the same time, the company updated its exterior coach graphics with a contemporary design and enhanced its Website.

Can-ar has purchased eight MCI J4500s over past three years, citing an appreciation for the model's smooth ride, clean-diesel technology, curb appeal and passenger amenities such as the patented spiral entryway. Each of Can-ar's newest J4500s is equipped with a Cummins engine, Allison transmission, plush seating, and a state-of-the-art Blaupunkt entertainment system with six flat-screen video monitors.

Altogether, Can-ar operates a fleet of 40 luxury coaches. "We have been using MCI coaches for almost 30 years and do believe that MCI has the best coaches in the market. That is why we have trusted MCI with our entire fleet of highway coaches," said Mehra.

Can-ar is a division of Tokmakjian Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tokmakjian Group.

"MCI is honored that Can-ar has once again selected the J4500," said Patricia Ziska, vice president and chief customer officer. "We truly value the long-term relationship we share with this company and respect the diversity and entrepreneurial spirit they bring to their complete business strategy."
