  MCI delivers 4 J4500s to Dallas operator


    From Metro:

Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., delivered four 2016 MCI J4500 coaches to Dallas' AJL International Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation.

The move marks a first in coaches for AJL, which enhances its 20-year highly successful business in corporate ground transportation.

The J4500 offers premium curb appeal, reliability and excellent fuel economy for the transportation demands of the major Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. Featuring a Bendix braking system, AJL drivers will notice its car-like control, and turning radius of 41 feet, nine inches, with standard passive rear tag for maneuvering tight city streets.

Clients are sure to appreciate the J4500’s BMW USA-designed looks and AJL signature additions including plush leather seating for 56 passengers, 110-volt outlets, USB plugs and Wi-Fi.

Beyond the coach’s physical features, AJL is especially attracted to the MCI Service Center located in Dallas.

Recently, MCI added an extensive aftermarket parts warehouse to its Dallas location to better serve nearby coach operators and MCI-trained technicians are on hand to provide maintenance and repairs.

Based at DFW International Airport in Dallas, AJL International has provided premier, high quality ground transportation services, primarily to the corporate market since 1995.   READ MORE >
