The Canadian government signed a contract to purchase four Motor Coach Industries (MCI) J4500 coaches with an option for six more. The new coaches will be used to transport Canadian Armed Forces personnel.

The coaches are headed for Canadian Forces based in Kingston and Meaford, Ontario; Shilo, Manitoba; and Wainwright, Alberta.

For 2013, the J4500 features many model-year improvements, including new LED headlights, improved lighting throughout, a taller appearance and a host of performance updates including a  more fuel-efficient, clean-diesel powertrain system. The coach also includes a host of safety features, including electronic stability control, an improved tire-pressure monitoring system and fire-suppression technology.
