ABC donates M1235 for ABA Foundation auction

Posted on December 6, 2012

ABC Companies donated a 2013 M1235 mid-sized motorcoach to the American Bus Association Foundation Live Auction, which will be held Jan. 6, 2013, at ABA Marketplace in Charlotte, N.C.

Assembled on a durable Freightliner S2 chassis and featuring an optimized rear suspension package, the M1235 offers a smooth ride built for the long haul and is equipped with a Cummins ISB 220 engine and Allison B210 transmission. The 30-passenger coach with three-point seat belts, drop floor luggage and exclusive one-piece windshield for maximum passenger viewing offers operators high-end, big coach features in a smaller group transport vehicle.

Donations to the Foundation Live Auction, such as the new M1235 from ABC Companies, help support ABA Scholarships, industry research and educational programs.

The ABA Foundation has awarded nearly 200 scholarships worth over $600,000 to industry families. The ABA research program has invested nearly $400,000 to show the societal impact of motorcoach travel and tourism and provides the information to change minds and win allies in legislatures across the country.
