Motor Coach Industries (MCI) commenced delivery of 30 new MCI J4500 coaches to Sam’s Limousine and Transportation Inc., providing extensive transportation services nationwide.
Through this order, Sam’s Limousine will expand its motorcoach fleet to a total of 100 vehicles, including 70 coaches, limousines, and black town cars, as well as shuttle and mini buses, allowing Sam’s Limousine to meet increased demand for charter services throughout Texas.
The new MCI coach interiors are tailored to Sam’s Limousine specifications and include signature leather-trimmed seating, tray tables and cup holders, and programmable multicolor interior lighting for superior passenger comfort.
The luxury coaches also will be equipped with MCI’s latest Advance Driver Assistance Systems, which include collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control, along with 360 degree exterior cameras to help drivers prevent road incidents and a Cummins clean-diesel engine that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, 15 of the new coaches will feature wheelchair lifts to ensure accessibility and a comfortable riding experience for passengers with mobility devices.
“There is a hunger for group travel,” said Omar Ghandour, founder and CEO, Sam’s Limousine. “Schools and sports teams are back traveling, and workers are returning to offices and job sites.”
Sam’s Limousine was founded in 1980 as a luxury limousine service in the Sugar Land and Houston areas. In 2004, Omar Ghandour acquired Sam’s Limousine; in 2010, it established a division dedicated to charters. Today, the company has a modern office and service center building on several acres at 9102 West Park Drive in Houston, which houses many of its vehicles. Sam’s Limousine plans to open a Dallas branch in June.
