Groupe Orléans Express took five new and six pre-owned J4500 coaches, and equipped them with bike racks. Eight of the coaches also feature wheelchair lifts. The coaches will be used by Lanau Bus, which operates city transit services in Les Moulins, L’Assomption and the City of Joliette.

Groupe Orléans Express transports annually more than 1.7 million passengers and almost a million parcels with a total staff of 900, and operates a fleet of 400 buses including 130 coaches.

For the past two decades, MCI has been the only North American coach manufacturer producing turnkey, fully secured heavy-duty inmate transport coaches. The LASD's newest models feature environmentally friendly Detroit Series 60 engine and Allison transmission and seat up to 50 inmates. Shatter-resistant acrylic windows are standard features on ISTVs, along with other special custom-features designed to protect and secure inmates.
