IMMI to supply Premier seats for 213 Greyhound buses

Posted on July 30, 2010

IMMI supplied Premier seats to Greyhound for 213 new motorcoaches sourced from Prevost and MCI. With this order, 20 percent of the Greyhound fleet will be equipped with lap-shoulder belts by the end of the summer, bringing its parent company, FirstGroup, closer to its goal of equipping the entire fleet within the next five years.

While the federal government does not yet require seat belts in large buses, FirstGroup is leading the motorcoach industry by equipping its Greyhound fleet with belted seats, working to address one of five federal highway safety priorities on the NTSB Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements for 2010.

IMMI Vice President James Johnson, said passenger reaction to belted seating has been positive. "Before the Premier seat was introduced, the technology did not exist to make lap-shoulder belts a viable option in the U.S. for use in motorcoaches," he said. "Greyhound has redefined the safety expectations of today's motorcoach passengers by moving forward with this safety integration. Passengers are responding favorably."

IMMI has a multi-year contract with FirstGroup as the exclusive seat supplier for all new motorcoaches in the Greyhound fleet. Premier made its debut on 140 new motorcoaches that joined the Greyhound fleet in the first quarter of 2009.
