Pa., Minn. operators add MCI J4500s

Posted on April 14, 2014

Douglassville, Pa.-based Klein Transportation recently added a new 2014 MCI J4500, its 15th MCI overall.

Klein’s newest MCI J4500 features an elegant spiral entryway, plush tiered seating and onboard video monitors, along with 110-volt outlets for passengers’ personal electronic devices. Portable Wi-Fi completes the connectivity picture.

The new coach also features a clean-diesel powertrain for nearly zero emissions to protect the environment and offers surprisingly good fuel economy for a 45-foot-long vehicle loaded with safety equipment.

Meanwhile, Kerkhoven, Minn.-based Rustad Bus Service also added a new J4500.

The operation’s new vehicles include tan leather seats, cup-holders, woodgrain flooring, flat-screen video monitors, 110-volt outlets at each seat and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The coach also comes equipped with a Cummins engine, an Allison transmission, Michelin tires and an array of safety features.

Rustad Tours serves customers from roughly a 125-mile radius with a fleet that also includes three high-end MCI E4500 coaches. Its tours cover 50 states and nine Canadian Provinces.
