Posted on February 14, 2013

New Bedford, Mass.-based Tremblay’s Bus Co. recently took delivery of six new Van Hool C2045 VIP coaches from ABC Companies.

The six coaches are powered by Detroit DD13 engines coupled to Allison B500 Gen IV transmissions and feature custom-tufted passenger seats, enclosed Microleather covered parcel racks, woodgrain flooring, Alcoa Dura Bright aluminum wheels, 110-volt outlets and REI’s deluxe entertainment system.

The 57-passenger seats are equipped with three-point seat belts, and the coaches have backup cameras and Van Hool’s unique rear passenger window.

Meanwhile, Harrison Global of Waltham, Mass., recently acquired four motorcoaches for their Cary, N.C., location — two Van Hool C2045s and two of ABC’s M1235 mid-sized coaches.

The 57-seat 2013 Van Hool’s are powered by Detroit DD13 engines coupled to Allison B500 Gen IV transmissions. They have Van Hool Grand Luxe leather covered seats with three-point seat belts, perimeter lighting and a luxury REI Elite entertainment system with 15.4-inch video monitors.
