ABC delivers Van Hool to Houston

Houston-based AFC Transportation took delivery of a 2012 Van Hool C2045 from ABC Companies.

Like every vehicle that AFC purchases, it is outfitted with Omatics GPS and DriveCams providing clientele with quality assurance. The new coach comes equipped with high-end leather trimmed seats with three-point seatbelts, wood grain floor, oversized 22-inch video monitors mounted in Van Hool’s unique contoured overhead rack, along with PC and iTouch connections.

The coach is powered by a Cummins ISX engine coupled to an Allison GenIV B500 transmission.

While offering charters to 48 states, they specialize in offering chauffeured luxury service in the Houston area. In addition AFC serves a number of local corporations with both transportation and shuttles. Every motorcoach operator is a trained, uniformed chauffeur. AFC currently operates three divisions — limousine, charter and transit. Among them they run nine motorcoaches, plus 18 low floor transit and shuttle buses, as well as a variety of limousines, limo buses and executive vans.
