Posted on March 18, 2010

Cranston, R.I.-based Island Flagship Trailways added a new MCI D4505 to its nearly 14-coach deluxe fleet.

One of several key carriers in the Trailways system supporting the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Flagship's vehicles were a frequent sight throughout the games. The newest model features electronic stability control, Amerex fire suppression and traction control as well as the SmartWave tire-pressure monitoring system.

Meanwhile, Francis Custom Tours of Arkadelphia, Ark., added a new 2010 MCI E4500.

According to company President Mary Francis, her firm deals mainly with retiree passengers and the 50-seat "E" coach will allow for two big necessities for that ridership - top-of-the-line comfort and extra room. Francis points out that among the many amenities included with the E4500, she also took the extra step to include the optional seatbelts on their newest coach to round out the features provided to their passengers.

Among the other features on the new Francis Custom Tours E4500 are leather and upholstery Amaya seating, 110-volt power outlets, burlwood laminated parcel racks and entry-trim, flush lavatory, Blaupunkt 10.4-inch monitors, a cordless microphone and a backup camera for the driver.
