MCI delivers six D4505s to Boston

Posted on August 9, 2010

[IMAGE]PaulRevere-Logan-Express-MCI-D4505FULL.jpg[/IMAGE]Paul Revere Transportation LLC added six new Motor Coach Industries (MCI) D4505 models to upgrade its fleet of 20 motorcoaches it runs in its line haul, public transit, shuttle and charter services throughout the greater Boston area.

 

The new coaches replace six older coaches in the Revere system. The new MCIs are wheelchair lift-equipped and feature Wi-Fi connectivity to keep riders working and communicating while traveling on more extensive runs. The new coaches are powered by clean-diesel engine technology outfitted with a Cummins engine and Allison transmission. The coaches also included exterior and interior destinations signs and a “talking bus system” that audibly announces upcoming stops.

 

The Chelsea, Mass.-based operator is using the coaches on its Logan Express service to both Braintree and Woburn, Mass., and on its shuttle to Boston Logan Airport terminal. The company also operates a shuttle service to the Boston Longwood Medical Area.

 

Paul Revere is one of the largest transportation companies in New England and the 17th largest private bus company in the U.S. More than a third of its coach fleet is clean-fueled.
