Motor Coach Industries (MCI) will deliver 130 MCI D4505 coaches to Greyhound Lines as part of a two-year contract.

The new coaches also come with three-point passenger seat belts and lush leatherette seating for 50.

Greyhound has also ordered MCI’s optional air-ride driver’s seat and added security features, including an aisle gate and driver’s shield. The new MCI D4505s are powered by clean-diesel Cummins engines paired with Allison B500 transmissions.
