ABC completes 400th Greyhound refurb

Posted on November 12, 2012

ABC Companies announced the completion and delivery of the 400th Greyhound refurbished bus.

Launched in late 2010, the Greyhound Fleet Revitalization Program was designed to enhance the Greyhound passenger trip experience by giving the fleet’s MCI-model motorcoaches an overall facelift.

As part of a multi-year program to refurbish the fleet, Greyhound vehicles have been arriving at ABC’s state-of-the-art dedicated refurbishment facility in Nappanee, Ind., to undergo a process designed to recondition units from bumper-to-bumper. The first of the modernized Greyhound coaches rolled out of the facility in September 2011, entirely refurbished for less than the cost of a new motorcoach.

Each bus passes through 25 separate work stations during the refurbishment process, which takes approximately 45 days to complete. Upgrades to the original coaches include Wi-Fi, 110-volt outlets, LED lighting, leatherette passenger seating and extra legroom, as well as wheelchair lifts.
