Echo/AFC Transportation, the largest privately held ground transportation company in Texas, added seven new 2019 Van Hool CX45 coaches to its premium fleet of over 300 vehicles.

A full-service ground transportation and logistics management leader, Echo/AFC operations span the entire state of Texas providing group travel services for a full range of tour, charter, shuttle, limo, and commuter services.

The seven newly-delivered Van Hool CX45 models offer passenger seating for up to 56 guests and the coaches offer a mix of luxury upgrades including leather-insert seats, contoured and modified contoured parcel racks with integrated 23-inch monitors, 110-volt outlets with USB connectors, and woodgrain flooring throughout.

Several of the coaches also feature chrome mirrors, side view cameras, and three models are fully-ADA compliant with Braun wheelchair lifts.

Additionally, as part of their safety protocol, the operation has integrated a number of technologies that enable them to monitor and enhance driver performance. Utilizing Drive-Cam systems to capture and record events, GPS tracking, and integrated ELD fleet-wide, Echo/AFC is focused on enhancing and promoting a strong safety culture throughout the organization.

The firm is committed to future growth outside the Texas region and has recently extended operations to the state of Florida, where they will run collegiate charter and shuttle service for the University of North Florida in Jacksonville.
