Michigan Flyer adds 7 luxury coaches

Posted on November 25, 2014

Michigan Flyer is putting a brand new fleet of seven luxury Prevost motorcoaches on the road this month, representing a $3.8 million investment by parent company Indian Trails Inc.

The new fleet is equipped with technology that reduces exhaust pollutants to near zero. In addition, motorcoaches like these achieve about 206 passenger miles per gallon on average and have the potential to remove 50 to 55 automobiles from the highway, further reducing air pollution and traffic congestion.

Safety features include an electronic stability system that enables drivers to avoid danger on slippery roads; an engine fire-detection and suppression system; two GPS systems; and a tire pressure monitoring system. All the coaches are equipped with three-point retractable seatbelts for passengers; ADA-compliant wheelchair lifts, and a large under-floor luggage compartment.

As for comfort, the new Prevost H3-45s offer deluxe, ergonomic seating with leather headrests and ample leg room; individual climate controls, reading lamps and cup holders; tinted, panoramic side windows; 110-volt AC outlets at each seat for charging mobile devices; free Wi-Fi; on-board lavatories; and enclosed, overhead parcel racks.

Currently celebrating its eighth anniversary, Michigan Flyer has carried nearly 700,000 passengers since its inaugural trips in November 2006. Besides connecting the Greater Lansing and Ann Arbor regions with one another—and with the world via Detroit Metro Airport—Michigan Flyer-AirRide brings some 50,000 out-of-state visitors a year to mid-Michigan, generating millions of dollars in local economic benefit.
