ABC delivers C2045s to Columbia, Mo.

Posted on October 28, 2011

Columbia, Mo.-based White Knight Coaches took delivery of two new black Van Hool C2045s from ABC Companies.

The 57-passenger coaches are powered by Detroit Diesel's new DD13 engine mated to Allison transmissions and equipped with Alcoa Durabrite aluminum wheels, chrome mirrors, backup cameras and three-point seat belts.

In addition, the new C2045s feature unique contoured parcel racks with the REI 22-inch flat screen monitors, satellite TV, wood grain flooring, Wi-Fi, 110 volt outlets and curbside perimeter lighting.

Located in the center of the state, Columbia offers White Knight the opportunity to serve the St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield markets, and over the years, the operator has established facilities in each of those hubs. The fleet has grown to 45 units, including 25 motorcoaches, as well as limousines, trolley buses, mini-coaches, entertainer buses and ultra-luxury coaches, providing service to college athletic teams, travel groups and entertainers.
