MCI delivers to N.Y., Pa.

Posted on July 20, 2011

[IMAGE]Shafer-s1-2.jpg[/IMAGE]Shafer's Tour and Charter of Endicott, N.Y., took delivery of a new MCI seatbelt-equipped coach J4500.

The new MCI J4500 joins several other MCI coaches, including one other J4500, in Shafer's 14-coach fleet. The relationship between the companies goes back more than two decades, to when Shafer's bought its first brand-new coach from MCI.

The operation ordered the J4500 with seatbelts because clients, especially schools, have been asking for the feature. It was also important for the company to have a second J4500 because it likes to have matched coach pairs for two-coach moves.

The new J4500s, delivered in spring, are the first Krapf coaches to feature three-point seatbelts and 110-volt outlets for passengers wishing to power personal electronic devices.

The new coaches also feature clean-diesel Detroit Diesel engines and Allison transmissions, along with standard MCI safety features such as electronic steering control and wide-ride suspension. Krapf additionally offers Wi-Fi service to its onboard customers.

Additionally, MCI announced that it can now be found on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
