MCI delivers J4500s to N.D., La.

Posted on April 3, 2014

The North Dakota Farmers Union took delivery of a new MCI J4500, which it uses to provide tours to help offset the costs of sending children to camp.

The new J4500 features an upgraded media package with both 110-volt outlets and USB ports at every seat, plus plug-ins that allow laptop presentations to be projected on the coach’s video screens. The coach was additionally delivered with three-point seatbelts, cup holders and an extra elegant touch—wood veneer flooring and accents that greet passengers as they ascend the signature MCI spiral entryway.

The J4500 model underwent a significant redesign in 2013, gaining new LED headlamps, a slightly taller look and other improvements.

In addition to a more fuel-efficient, clean-diesel engine, the 2014 model also features MCI's MDSS suspension system and standard safety features including electronic stability control, tire-pressure monitoring and a fire-suppression system.

MCI also announced that New Orleans-based Louisiana Trailways also took delivery of a new J4500.

Louisiana Trailways operates a fleet of more than 20 motorcoaches as well as mini buses. The operation provides many services, including convention and cruise-ship travel and fixed-price casino shuttles from various points near New Orleans.
