DC Trails, a Washington D.C. charter and tour bus company, purchased 15 new Van Hool coaches from ABC Companies, including 14 2018 CX45 models and one 2018 TX with a two-door option.

Both the CX and TX models are ADA-equipped and include 110-volt outlets, Allison transmissions, six 15-inch monitors, aluminum wheels, and back-up cameras. The CX45 models are painted Tangerine Mist Metallic and are powered by a Detroit engine. The TX model is powered by a Cummins engine and painted metallic blue.

The company offers a unique combination of both line-run and charter services including tours and group transportation. It partners with many universities to fill its transportation needs, including American University, Georgetown University, and George Washington University to name a few. The TX model will be utilized for American University transportation in which DC Trails operates.

In addition to its very active charter bus service, the company has recently purchased the BestBus line-run service, and operates the Hop-On/Hop-Off Open-Top Sightseeing service in Washington, D.C., as well as the Twilight Monument Tours and Mount Vernon Tours. With over 70 new state-of-the-art motorcoaches, the charter bus portion of the business serves not only the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas, but the entire continental U.S. and Canada.
