Reading (Minn.) Bus Lines added a new 2013 T2145 to its all-Van Hool fleet.

The coach is driven by a Cummins ISX 11.9 (425 HP) EPA 2010 engine coupled to an Allison B500 Six-Speed Automatic (Gen4) transmission. The 57-passenger coach features Van Hool’s contoured parcel racks with six 22-in. video monitors, a rear passenger window, 110 volt outlets at each seat, Wi-Fi, and Alcoa Dura Bright aluminum wheels.

Reading Bus Lines now operates a fleet of luxury coaches out of three facilities, serving the Minnesota’s Twin Cities area, southwest Minnesota, and eastern South Dakota, as well as northern Iowa with nationwide charter service and tours. Reading also recently added a new school bus division.
