Company Brings First 2018 MCI J4500 To Canada

Posted on September 11, 2017

DES PLAINES, Ill. ‒ Motor Coach Industries announced Coach Atlantic, one of Canada’s most diversified transportation operators, is completing a 13-coach MCI order with the delivery of a new 2018 J4500, making the Prince Edward Island carrier the first in Canada to put MCI’s new coach into service.

“The motorcoach Industry is changing,” said Mike Cassidy, President of Coach Atlantic Group. “Today’s customers realize their bus is an integral part of their travel experience and expect new, comfortable equipment with all the amenities.  Successful motor coach operators understand the competitive edge of having new luxury buses to meet the expectations of their customers.”

More than 300 of Coach Atlantic's dedicated, professional employees manage service and operate 200 vehicles with daily, weekly, and seasonal bus services for charter, line-run, public school, and municipal transit customers.

The company offers corporate/VIP charters, scheduled line run bus service, local commuter services, airport transportation, school and team transport, and wedding and event services. The members of the Coach Atlantic Group include the operating companies of Prince Edward Tours, Coach Atlantic, Maritime Bus, Airport Express, Courier Express, and T3 Transit.

The order was announced earlier this year at UMA Expo, with MCI new coach sales VP Pat Ziska. She added the original 13-coach deal was significant not only for a private company, but one with such a dominant name in Canadian transportation.

“Nothing makes us happier than great feedback from passengers, and we can’t wait to hear how well the newest J4500 will serve their ridership,” Ziska said. Coach Atlantic operates throughout New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island.
