Anchor Trailways adds D4505s to fleet



Nashville’s Anchor Trailways, which has garnered capital assistance from 5311(f) funding intended to make transit more available in rural areas, took delivery of three MCI D4505s that went into service in July and ordered another two for spring delivery.

The new coaches are in addition to the two D4505 coaches Anchor Trailways acquired at the beginning of the year.

The three D4505s serve Anchor’s new A.T. Runner service between Florence, Ala., and Nashville, making 12 scheduled stops in all. Beyond offering transportation and intermodal connections, the coaches are equipped with satellite television, 110-volt outlets and wireless Internet.
