Setra delivers S 407s to Pa.’s Martz Group

Posted on September 22, 2011

Wilkes-Barre, Pa.-based Martz Group ordered seven Setra ComfortClass S 407 motorcoaches from Daimler Buses North America. This is the first Setra purchase for the Martz Group.

The Setra ComfortClass S 407 features a roomy cabin with flush-mounted interior lighting in the ceiling and comfortable seating that holds passengers in style. Special amenities onboard the motorcoach include Wi-Fi and power inverters installed throughout for passengers to recharge electronic devices and laptops.

The Setra ComfortClass S 407 in the Martz fleet will sport a fuel efficient Mercedes-Benz OM 471 engine with BlueTec technology, backed by an optional ZF AS Tronic 12-speed auto stick transmission. Other features include Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to reduce harmful emissions and environmental pollutants, a durable power train, automatic traction control, cruise control and a pneumatic telescoping driver’s steering wheel.

The new Setra fleet is custom built from the manufacturer’s production facility in Ulm, Germany. Delivery will start in late September from Setra’s North America corporate headquarters in Greensboro, N.C.

Once delivered, the ComfortClass S 407 coaches will become part of the Martz’s fleet at its headquarters in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
