Columbus, Ohio’s Cardinal Transportation Ltd. took delivery of two 2018 Van Hool TX45 motorcoaches from ABC Companies, adding to the purchase of a CX45 earlier this year.
Roy Alonso founded Cardinal Transportation in 2000 and has since grown the company into one of the largest and most diversified transportation companies in Central Ohio. With its fleet of over 59 vehicles, including 23 full-size motorcoaches, shuttle buses, limousines, and towncars, Cardinal can provide transportation options for both large and small groups. Their offerings include charter and tour airport transportation, chauffeured limousine services, and more.
Both new 56 passenger Van Hool TX45s are equipped with Detroit Diesel DD13, 450 HP engines and Allison B500 (Gen5) six-speed automatic transmissions, and feature Amaya A2TEN leather seats with fabric inserts and three-point seat belts. Optional features include passenger side window shades, woodgrain flooring, enclosed parcel racks, and cup holders.
The passenger entertainment experience is enhanced with on-board Wi-Fi, REI’s multimedia interface and monitors, and 110-volt USB outlets, while Van Hool standard safety features include an anti-lock braking system, automatic traction control, electronic stability control, lane departure warning system, Kidde fire suppression system, daytime running lights, and adaptive static light system. Cardinals’ striking graphic package was produced and installed by ABC Companies in their Winter Garden, Fla., location prior to delivery of these coaches.
