Great Canadian Holiday and Coaches added five MCI J4500 coaches to its growing fleet.

The Kitchener, Ontario-based tour provider, part of the Trailways charter bus network, added two 2018 MCI J4500s last September and will take delivery of three all-new 2019 models this month.

With a major redesign in model year 2018, Great Canadian’s newest 56-seat coaches now feature industry-leading legroom, three-point passenger seatbelts, a new driver dash with a high definition instrument panel, and enhanced lighting throughout. A new-for-2019 swing-out electric e-fan cooling package simplifies roadside engine access, improves fuel-efficiency, and speeds maintenance on Great Canadian’s upcoming delivery.

The new coaches fulfill Great Canadian’s goal to bring the average age of its 50-coach fleet to 4.5 years.

Founded in 1984 by owners Larry and Lorna Hundt, the company began as Travel Ventures and changed its name to Great Canadian Holidays and Coaches in 1998. After the 1995 Quebec referendum, the company dedicated each of their coaches with decals and air brushed images depicting a variety of Canadian themes.
