The coaches, a mix of MCI J4500 and MCI D4505 models, showcase Peter Pan's new exterior graphic and new signature interior featuring customized fabric on seats with three-point seat belts, power outlets, Wi-Fi connectivity and wide flat-screen video monitors.

The new coaches also feature clean-diesel engine technology for lower emissions as mandated by the EPA along with MCI's safety and performance package of Electronic Stability Control, SmartWave tire pressure monitoring and Amerex fire suppression system.

MCI, which has been serving Peter Pan since 1974 and delivered its very first J4500 to the company in 2001, will complete delivery of all 30 coaches by May.

Peter Pan operates a fleet of 250 coaches with an average age of six and half years and plans to update its fleet with the new graphics and interior updates over the few next years.

MCI plans to showcase Peter Pan's new J4500 at the ABA Marketplace, Jan. 15 to 19, at Gaylord National Harbor, Md.
