Knoxville, Tenn.’s Premier Transportation recently took delivery of six new Van Hool coaches, including three CX35 and two CX45 models and one TX model with in-seat audio, from ABC Companies.

Founded in 2003, the company began on the premise to supply East Tennessee with the highest level of motorcoach services. Today, Premier has grown to become a leader in charter service with a well-rounded fleet of 51 vehicles ranging from 14-passenger shuttles to 81-passenger Van Hool double-deck coaches. Premier primarily runs charter service to New York City; Washington, D.C.; Orlando; and Chicago, as well as other U.S. and Canadian destinations.

A long-time ABC customer, Premier began purchasing Van Hools in 2004 and the two companies have worked well together to satisfy its customer base.

Premier was one of the first private operators to purchase a Van Hool TD925 double-deck coach solely for charter service. This was an undeveloped market, which presented a challenge and opportunity for the operator. The company was successful and creative in establishing a market for this specialty coach and shortly added a second double-deck to the fleet.
