Prevost announce the recent delivery of two X3-45 Commuter coaches to Southeastern Stages, a leading provider of schedule and charter motorcoach service in the Southeast. Southeastern has been transporting passengers since 1933, serving Atlanta and the surrounding areas with a fleet of over 40 modern motorcoaches.  

The wheelchair accessible Prevost vehicles are equipped with comfortable seating for 55 passengers and feature reclining seats, footrests, power outlets and wireless internet access among other amenities. The new fleet additions also include important safety features like three-point seatbelts for every seat, anti-lock braking, electronic stability control, fire suppression systems and Prevost’s Aware adaptive cruise braking system by Bendix.

Mike Dickson, Southeastern Stages president, notes that this is the first time that SES has been able to offer this sort of advanced technology in a Buy America-compliant vehicle. “By loading our buses with technology and teaching our drivers how to avoid situations where we are forced to depend on them, we continue to lead the market in delivering safe, comfortable and affordable bus service.”

The vehicles  were ordered as part of Southeastern Stages’ continuing partnership with the South Carolina Department of Transportation and with the assistance of the Federal Transit Administration Intercity Bus Program. An additional Buy America-compliant vehicle is scheduled for delivery later this month.
