MCI delivers J4500s to Quebec, Va.

Posted on July 28, 2015

Laval, Quebec, Canada’s Autobus Galland added two new MCI J4500 coaches, equipped with the latest safety technology, including electronic stability control, a new ZF independent front suspension for a superb turning radius and ride quality, and a Bendix braking system that delivers car-like control for drivers.

Galland equips its fleet of 20 coaches with its own GPS featuring telematics. The system collects key data such as asset operation, location, engine status, fuel efficiency, driver hours and driving habits. The operation has a total fleet of 125 vehicles including school buses, shuttles and vans, all transporting several hundred thousand passengers annually.

 

Additionally, Newton Bus Service of Gloucester, Va., also added two 2015 MCI J4500s, featuring a Detroit Diesel engine and Allison transmission with all-luxury appointments inside — wood grain floors and paneling, Wi-Fi and a full state-of-the-art-entertainment system.

The coaches are also fitted for wheelchair access.
