MCI delivers 2011 J4500, E4500 to Calif.

Posted on February 24, 2011

[IMAGE]Certified-2-2.jpg[/IMAGE]Santa Ana, Calif.-based Certified Transportation Services is one of the first to take delivery of a 2011 MCI J4500 coach powered by the next generation of clean-diesel engine technology that promises near-zero emissions.

Featuring a 2010 EPA Cummins ISX 11.9L 425 hp engine paired with an Allison B500 transmission, Certified's new J4500 model also features electronic stability control, Amerex fire suppression system and a SmartWave tire pressure monitoring system.

The company opted for customized Amaya seating with three-point passenger seatbelts and a state-of-the art entertainment system with six 15-inch LCD widescreen monitors.

"It's a beautiful coach," said David Gregory, president of the family-operated charter and school bus company. "It has a good-looking interior, and customer acceptance has been great."

Gregory said he added the three-point seatbelts due to customer requests and to match his seatbelt-equipped school bus fleet. California law requires seatbelts in school buses.

The new coaches feature upscale amenities, including black leather seating for 50. Riders have access to Wifi, power outlets and other options that keep them connected and productive while commuting.

The 2010-standard engines, which offer near-zero emissions and significant fuel savings over previous models, are just part of Royal's commitment to the environment. The company was one of the first coach companies in the country to start retrofitting its coaches with Diesel Particulate Filter technology, thanks to a grant.

The company has extended its green ambitions to its facility as well, with a water reclamation system that serves its bus wash, extensive use of biodegradable materials and an aggressive recycling policy.
