MCI delivers to Texas, S.C. operators

Posted on July 30, 2012

Taylor, Texas-based Clark Travel recently took delivery of 10 new MCI J4500 coaches.

The new coaches are equipped with the latest engine technology for near-zero emissions, a high-end entertainment system, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and 110-volt outlets, bringing its fleet to 26 MCI coaches.

Clark Travel employs nearly 55 people and serves many area schools, colleges and youth groups. The company recently consolidated its locations, opening a new, nine-acre, 13,500-square-foot facility in Taylor, near Austin, that includes an environmentally friendly bus wash, three-bay maintenance area and space for fueling capabilities.

In addition, Bluffton, S.C.-based Lowcountry Regional Transportation Authority took delivery a new MCI Commuter Coach for its Palmetto Breeze service.

Its Commuter Coach features the latest clean-diesel engine technology for near-zero emissions and a new, fourth-generation multiplex system for simplified diagnostics.

Palmetto Breeze uses its MCI Commuter Coaches, all equipped with audio and video entertainment systems, on long-distance routes including the 150-mile trip to Allendale, S.C. Ridership tends to be workers employed by resort hotels in the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton areas.

Altogether, Palmetto Breeze has a mixed fleet of 31 vehicles, providing 150,000 one-way trips annually, and serves seven Lowcountry counties.
