Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., delivered a brand new J4500 and two pre-owned, re-energized J4500s to Sturgeon Bay, Wis.-based Babler Bus Service.

Babler’s new J4500 includes a powertrain featuring the Detroit Diesel DD13 engine and Allison transmission. Interiors feature top-grade Kiel seating with leather trim accompanied by individual 110-volt outlets with USB ports for maximum entertainment and comfort.

The operation’s newest coach also features tempered glass roof-hatches, a backup safety camera, chrome mirrors and a custom, marble-look hydrographic spiral entryway exclusive to MCI — “It really makes an impression with our passengers,” said Babler’s Owner/CEO Paul Babler.

Based in Sturgeon Bay, Babler is a fixture in Southern Door County, providing charter services for events, such as weddings, ball games, school outings, ski trips, and church groups. The company’s most popular tours include Chicago staples like the annual Flower & Garden Show and year-round shopping and museum trips; Milwaukee Brewers’ games; a Branson, Mo., holiday tour; and the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. Babler also serves Two Rivers and Manitowoc through Green Bay, and offers weekly casino tours departing from Door County, through Green Bay.
