ABC completes 400th Greyhound refurb

ABC Companies announced the completion and delivery of the 400th Greyhound refurbished bus.

Launched in late 2010, the Greyhound Fleet Revitalization Program was designed to enhance the Greyhound passenger trip experience by giving the fleet’s MCI-model motorcoaches an overall facelift.

As part of a multi-year program to refurbish the fleet, Greyhound vehicles have been arriving at ABC’s state-of-the-art dedicated refurbishment facility in Nappanee, Ind., to undergo a process designed to recondition units from bumper-to-bumper. The first of the modernized Greyhound coaches rolled out of the facility in September 2011, entirely refurbished for less than the cost of a new motorcoach.

Each bus passes through 25 separate work stations during the refurbishment process, which takes approximately 45 days to complete. Upgrades to the original coaches include Wi-Fi, 110-volt outlets, LED lighting, leatherette passenger seating and extra legroom, as well as wheelchair lifts.

    I spent from 1967-1969 as a Greyhound Motor Coach Operator first plugging the extra board in Chicago, IL.Div. 1126 after completing Greyhound Professional Drivers Safety Training program in Kansas City in June 1967. I transferred to the Rockford Terminal in 1968 after biding a morning schedule from Freeport to Chicago Div 1150, I made the mistake of transferring to Effingham, IL Div. 1500 in the spring of 1969. After having to deal with those folks in Memphis who did not like a yankee moving into their territory I resigned. It is so good to see the company return to a closer paint scheme of the original colors of the company in earlier years. What a beautiful car. To view this beautiful work brings back so many fond memories. Truly a work of art.
