Arrow Stage Lines adds 2 MCI J4500s

Posted on October 9, 2014

Omaha, Neb.-based Arrow Stage Lines took delivery of two new MCI J4500s, including the 7,000th model to roll off the E/J line at MCI’s Winnipeg facility.

With this delivery, Arrow is the first to own MCI J4500s with the new ZF axle system with independent front- and tag-axle suspension and a Bendix braking system that complements the model’s recently added MCI Dynamic Suspension System (MDSS).

The technology upgrades now give the J4500 car-like braking and a significantly tighter turning radius of 40 feet, 11 inches compared to a previous 47 feet.

Arrow’s newest J4500s also come equipped with the latest Detroit Diesel engines offering better fuel economy and standard safety features including Electronic Stability Control, tire pressure monitoring and Amerex fire suppression. Inside the cabin, passengers will enjoy three-point passenger seatbelts, power outlets at each seat and Wi-Fi connectivity.

In addition to its latest two MCI J4500 coaches, Arrow added two Setra S 417 models purchased through MCI, bringing its total MCI-associated fleet to 61 J4500s, 16 other MCI models and 59 Setra coaches.
