The safety features of the five new 2016 Prevost H3-45 coaches include an electronic stability system that enables drivers to avoid danger on slippery roads; an engine fire-detection and suppression system; two GPS systems; and a tire pressure monitoring system. All the coaches are equipped with three-point retractable seatbelts for passengers, ADA-compliant wheelchair lifts, and a large under-floor luggage compartment.
Comfort features in the new coaches include ergonomic seating with ample leg room; individual climate controls, reading lamps and cup holders; tinted, panoramic side windows; 110-volt AC outlets at each seat for charging mobile devices; free WiFi; on-board lavatories; and enclosed, overhead parcel racks.
In addition, the coaches offer five color monitors connected to a DVD player—along with USB and VGA hookups to connect laptops to the audio visual system—enabling groups to play movies or display presentations while on the road.
Eco-friendly aspects of these coaches include technology that exceeds EPA standards by reducing exhaust pollutants to near zero while achieving high fuel economy of about 206 passenger miles per gallon on average. Also, each coach has the potential to remove 50-55 automobiles from the highway, further reducing air pollution and traffic congestion.
“We invest in coaches with the latest safety, comfort, and eco-friendly features because of our commitment to our customers, our communities, and our environment,” said Indian Trails and Michigan Flyer CEO Gordon Mackay.
