Royal Coach Tours in San Jose, CA recently took delivery of two 38-passenger Van Hool CX35 coaches from ABC Companies.

“Short buses are ideal for some of [the] tight locations we serve. We were looking for [a] lavatory-equipped coach that offered the same level of comfort as our big motorcoaches. After visiting the factory, and seeing how these were built, they seemed like a fit,” said Royal Coach Tours President Sandy Allen.

The new Van Hool coaches are powered by Cummins ISL 9 liter engines driving through Allison B500 transmissions. They also have chrome mirrors, wood grained floors, Grand Luxe black leather seating with cup holders and magazine nets, power outlets with USB ports, and a tour guide HDMI port station. ABC Companies is Van Hool's exclusive U.S. Distributor.

Royal Coach Tours was founded in 1960 with a single used 37-passenger coach. Now in the second generation of family management, the company has grown to 67 vehicles and 125 employees. A proud member of International Motorcoach Group, they were awarded IMG's prestigious 2015 Safety Award.

“As a luxury transportation provider it's important that we operate and maintain superior equipment, and Dan [Smith, VP,] makes sure our drivers can be proud to drive the coaches in our fleet,” Allen said.
