DATTCO, the largest Connecticut-based, passenger transportation company, is pleased to announce it has taken delivery of seven new 2018 Van Hool CX series motor coaches from ABC Companies, Van Hool's exclusive U.S. distributor.

The coaches — six of which are configured to seat 52 passengers (CX45), and one that carries 36 passengers (CX35) — have arrived just in time for New England's popular Fall Foliage touring season. The coaches include increased leg room, luxurious reclining seats with leather-trimmed fabric and three-point seatbelts, entertainment systems with large monitors, DVD player, and iPod docks; as well as 110-volt and USB outlets at every seat and wireless internet. They also include safety features like a fire suppression system, stability control, and lane departure warning.

“We are committed to providing our customers with safe, reliable transportation; the driving factor behind keeping our fleet current," said Donald DeVivo, president and second-generation owner of DATTCO. "The average age of the equipment in our fleet is less than four years. We have tremendous repeat business because our clients know they are getting a dependable, quality coach when they enter into a contract with us.”

Established in 1924, DATTCO is a third-generation family-owned business headquartered in New Britain, Conn. The company's story began in the 1940's when Ed DeVivo took a side job as a school bus driver for a local operator. In 1949, he purchased the company and expanded it, adding its first motor coaches in the early 1960's. DATTCO made its mark in the motor coach industry in 1964 providing service to the World's Fair in New York City.

Today, DATTCO's motor coaches serve New England, carrying grade school and college teams to sporting events, and groups on day trips or week-long excursions to destinations across the country and Canada, among other special events and contract work.
