Lewis Stages adds customized J4500

Posted on January 15, 2010

[IMAGE]Lewis-Stages-Deluxe-MCI-J4500FULL.jpg[/IMAGE] Salt Lake City-based Lewis Stages recently took delivery of a new Motor Coach Industries (MCI) J4500. The vehicle features a custom-designed interior and includes a removable mini-galley that allows Lewis Stages to change the deluxe 56-passenger coach into a 46-seat coach with galley, making it easy to adapt to smaller groups on longer tours. 

 

Decked out on the outside with a decal saluting U.S. national parks, the coach also features the latest passenger-pleasing amenities including a Blaupunkt entertainment system with 15-inch video monitors, access to outlets to recharge personal electronics, and individual air-flow controls and reading lights.

 

In June, Lewis Stages took delivery of three J4500 coaches equipped with clean-diesel engine technology. Altogether, the company operates a fleet of nearly 40 tour coaches and 30 transit-style and mini-buses.

 

MCI is showcasing the coach at the ABA Marketplace Jan. 15 to 19 in National Harbor, Md. All Resort, parent company to Lewis Stages, also operates a fleet of limousines and shuttle buses, including some featuring hybrid technology.

 

Lewis Stages' custom interior was created in close collaboration with MCI and Richard Bizzaro, chairman/CEO of All Resort Coaches, and his wife, Wendy Gray, an interior designer.
