Prevost delivers coaches from coast to coast

Bismarck, N.D.-based Harlow's Trailways purchased two Prevost H3-45 coaches to launch a new service in Washington State.

Harlow's Trailways of Washington, as the new operation will be known, is based in Auburn midway between Seattle and Tacoma.

The new H3-45 coaches, the first Prevosts in the Harlow's Trailways fleet, are equipped with the many features that come standard on the touring coach.

Meanwhile, Swarthout Coaches Inc. of Ithaca, N.Y., took possession of a new Prevost H3-45 motorcoach.

The new vehicle joins a predominantly Prevost fleet of 12 coaches and is equipped with seat belts and a generous supply of 110 volt outlets.

The new coach will be used primarily to provide transportation services to educational institutions including Cornell University, Ithaca College and State University of New York College at Cortland.
