Transport Clement Begin's nine new 2020 MCI J4500 coaches

From MCI:

Transport Clément Bégin's 9 new 2020 MCI J4500 coaches offer rugged reliability and a comfortable, spacious ride for Hecla Mine workers in Northern Quebec

Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a U.S. subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., ("NFI"), one of the world's largest independent global bus manufacturers, has completed a delivery of nine new 2020 MCI J4500 coaches to Transport Clément Bégin.

Based in Sainte-Germaine-Boule in Western Quebec, Canada, Transport Clément Bégin purchased the new J4500s to shuttle mining personnel nearly 100 miles to a remote site in Northern Quebec seven days a week. These are the very first new MCI coaches for the leading charter and school bus company, named after the founder, and now its third generation of family leadership and 61st year.

Built with a semi-monocoque low-corrosion stainless steel body, the MCI J4500 is ideally suited to long-distance employee shuttles. Offering a modern, spacious interior and best-in-class legroom, Clément Bégin's new coaches have a 52-passenger seating capacity. The model's lighter weight, next-generation Cummins X12 engine, new for model year 2020, improves fuel economy and extends the J4500's low total cost of operation even further.
