The company, which serves Alberta with four locations, provides tour and charter coach transportation for tourists, organizations, schools and sports teams, along with long-distance employee shuttle service for the mining and oil industries located in the area.

Golden Arrow's new D4505 coaches include seating, with grab rails, for 51 passengers rather than the standard 56-seat configuration, a destination sign and yellow strips on the entrance steps.

The coaches are also equipped with a Detroit Diesel engine and Allison transmission, along with the standard safety features of Electronic Stability Control, a SmartWave tire-pressure monitoring system and an Amerex fire-suppression system.
