MCI delivers 5 J4500s to Miami's Travel By Bus!

Posted on September 1, 2015

Miami’s Travel by Bus! added five 2015 MCI J4500s, featuring backup cameras, three-point seatbelts and Bendix Wingman Advanced — an active collision mitigation system. The company also opted for power outlets and offers Wi-Fi on its vehicles.

The 2015 J4500 also comes with a variety of model improvements, including an independent ZF front suspension for tighter turning and an improved ride; and Bendix brakes that offer car-like control. The J4500’s clean-diesel powertrain additionally achieves fuel-economy gains over its competitors. Safety technologies include Smartire tire-pressure monitoring and Amerex fire suppression.

Travel by Bus! prides itself on its personalized service, right down to making sure that late-night calls are answered by staff as opposed to an answering service. The company employs an administrative staff of four, plus about 13 drivers and additional mechanics for its current fleet of 11 coaches.
