Motor Coach Industries (MCI) delivered two new 2019 Livery Edition MCI J4500 coaches to Dallas-based Premier Transportation Services.

These J4500s — one delivered in April and another in June — brings the fleet of North Texas ground transportation company to 11 MCI J4500 coaches that are 2016 or newer and a total fleet of 97 vehicles that also include limousines, sedans, sprinters, and mini-buses.

The 2019 J4500 coach features include best-in-class legroom, baggage capacity and interior space. MCI’s Livery Edition adds black leather diamond stitch seating for 56 passengers in addition to woodgrain flooring, power outlets with USB ports at every seat and a programmable lighting package to personalize the interior in variable hues of red, green or blue.

Premier Transportation was named the 2017 National Operator of the Year at the LCT International Show in Las Vegas. He and Premier also received the 2018 American Bus Association’s Green Spirit Award Sponsored by MCI in the small coach operator category for its paperless office environment, customized smartphone booking apps and its dedication to continuous energy-saving education for drivers and staff.

The 2019 model is also equipped with MCI’s e-fan cooling package and Cummins’ next generation X12 clean-diesel engine, which runs quietly, has fewer parts, uses less fuel and adds to the J4500’s industry-leading low total cost of operation. Premier’s new coaches also come with satellite TV and Wi-Fi.

Premier, founded by president and owner Eric Devlin in 1996 with two vehicles and three employees, grew rapidly by offering a superior level of livery service to the Dallas-Fort Worth market. In 2015, Premier expanded its group transportation strategy with the purchase of its first two J4500 coaches and the debut of Premier Tours Global. The new division opened opportunities for Premier to serve tour operators, the frequent independent traveler (FIT) and the college student market while offering tour packages of its own.
