Parsons & Sons, based out of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, recently added a 2019 MCI J4500 to its fleet, which went into service immediately.

Operating a mixed fleet of 15 coaches, which also includes 2006, 2007, and 2016 J4500s, Parsons likes how the J4500 sticks to the road, especially in blustery conditions.

A knowledgeable mechanic having worked with his dad on their company’s earliest MCI models, Parsons has 47 years in the bus business. And he’s still learning by taking online courses offered by the ASE- accredited MCI Academy’s Learning Management System (LMS).

The new swing-out style electric e-fan cooling package and a clean-diesel Cummins engine on their newest J4500 are also appreciated for fuel the savings compared to the operator’s older coaches, noted Parsons, the second generation to lead the family firm founded by his father Richard in 1962.
