ABC delivers C2045s to D.C., San Diego

Posted on December 30, 2011

Lorton, Va.-based DC Trails received four 2012 Van Hool C2045 coaches from ABC Companies.

The coaches are powered by Cummins ISX engines coupled to Allison B500G4 transmissions. The 57-passenger seats are equipped with European standard three-point seat belts and footrests. In addition, the coaches have REI Elite Entertainment systems with six 15.4-inch monitors, Alcoa Dura Bright aluminum wheels, and an ASA backup camera. These four coaches follow three high end Van Hool T2145L luxury coaches delivered earlier in the year.

Additionally, San Diego’s Sun Diego Charter Co. recently purchased eight 2012 Van Hool C2045s, bringing its fleet size to 53 motorcoaches.

One of the coaches is an 81-passenger Van Hool TD925 that Sun Diego offers to customers with large groups. The Double Deck offers a unique luxury experience for its customers, while being substantially less expensive to operate than the two coaches normally required for 81 customers.

Driven by a Detroit Diesel DD13 engine coupled to an Allison B500 Gen4 transmission, seven of the new coaches are ADA accessible, and all have REI Entertainment systems, Sun Diego’s unique full wrap graphics package and Van Hool’s unique spiral entrance area.

Sun Diego operates 41 scheduled routes to casinos, as well as providing transportation to the military, luxury charter service, convention shuttles and contract work.
