Posted on April 11, 2011

[IMAGE]Lamers-2011-J4500-high-res-2.jpg[/IMAGE]Green Bay, Wis.-based Lamers Bus Lines Inc. added four 2011 MCI J4500 coaches powered by a clean-diesel Cummins engine and ZF Astronic power train. At the same time, it has added an MCI Coach Driving Training Simulator.

Lamers' newest coaches come equipped with wide-ride suspension, electronic stability control, SmarTire tire-pressure monitoring and Amerex fire-suppression systems as standard features. Lamers added three-point passenger seatbelts, self-retracting footrests, a state-of-the-art entertainment system with six 10.2-inch LCD Blaupunkt monitors, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 10 110-volt outlets that let passengers charge electronic and digital devices.

Already holding the highest possible safety and operational ratings from the U.S. Departments of Defense and Transportation, Lamers added the MCI Coach Driving Training Simulator to further its educational programs.

Designed to give drivers the skills they need to become safer, more confident and better prepared behind the wheel, the simulator helps drivers become familiar with navigating a 45-foot MCI motor coach through traffic, mountains and inclement weather, while simulating situations that may occur on the road.

The company also added optional three-point passenger seatbelts and a wheelchair lift.
