Michigan coach co. launches luxury fleet

Posted on January 25, 2012

East Lansing, Mich.-based Michigan Flyer is putting an all-new fleet of four luxury motorcoaches on the road this month, representing a $2,124,000 investment in the intercity and airport shuttle service by parent company Indian Trails Inc., of Owosso, Mich.

Michigan Flyer makes eight round trips each day between East Lansing, Jackson, Ann Arbor and Detroit Metropolitan Airport, carrying more than 90,000 passengers a year.

The new fleet ― all state-of-the-art 2012 Prevost H3-45 coaches ― is one of the first in Michigan to be equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction technology, which combines Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Diesel Particulate Filters to produce near zero emissions.

The new coaches ― all equipped with ADA-compliant wheelchair lifts ― also feature a collection of amenities designed to enhance passenger safety and comfort.

One innovative safety feature is an electronic stability system that enables drivers to avoid danger in adverse conditions, such as ice and snow. It monitors vehicle movement, wheel speed, steering angle, and lateral acceleration, then automatically applies brakes or reduces throttle if necessary to prevent skid or rollover.

Other advanced safety features include GPS; three-point retractable passenger seat belts; an engine fire-detection and suppression system; and a tire pressure monitoring system.

The new coaches also feature deluxe, ergonomic seating and ample leg room; individual aircraft-style climate controls and reading lamps; tinted Thermopane side windows offering panoramic views plus privacy; 110-volt AC outlets at each seat for charging mobile devices; free Wi-Fi Internet connectivity; flat-screen video monitors; on-board lavatories; enclosed, overhead parcel racks; convenient cup holders; and the largest luggage capacity of any motorcoach available.
