Sun Diego Charter and their Anaheim, Calif.-based sister company, Sun Express, have taken delivery of four new Van Hool CX45 luxury coaches from ABC Companies, Van Hool’s exclusive U.S. distributor.

Founded in 1997 by Bev and Rich Illes, with two minibuses and two MC-9's, the companies now operate a combined fleet of 90 coaches in the San Diego and Los Angeles markets. Sun Diego continues to grow in their local San Diego market with a diverse mix including 41 scheduled routes to casinos, contract, school/university, and general charter services. They recently opened a modern facility in Anaheim to help expand their brand into the Orange County, Los Angeles, and Riverside County markets.

“We were acquired by All Aboard America! Holdings LLC in 2014 and that has actually enhanced our ability to offer first rate transportation,” says Rich Illes. “We’ve kept our great reputation and unique identity, while continuing to offer the close personal relationships and quality service customers expect from a local company, but now backed by the resources of a regional powerhouse.”

The 56 passenger ADA-compliant coaches are powered by Cummins ISX engines coupled to Allison B500 Gen4 transmission and boast Grande Lux seating, woodgrain flooring, REI Elite entertainment systems, Wi-Fi, and 110 volt outlets, as well as Van Hool’s unique rear passenger window.

All four coaches also incorporate Van Hool safety features including three-point seatbelts, backup camera, lane departure warning, antilock brakes, Smartwave Tire Pressure Monitoring, Kidde Fire Suppression Systems, automatic stability control, daytime running lights, curbside lighting, and adaptive static aiming lights.
