SOUTHEASTERN STAGES TAKES DELIVERY OF PREVOST® BUY AMERICA COMPLIANT INTERCITY MOTORCOACHES
September 12, 2016, (Sainte Claire, QC) – Prevost is pleased to announce the recent delivery of two X3-45 Commuter™ coaches to Southeastern Stages, a leading provider of schedule and charter motorcoach service in the Southeast. Southeastern has been transporting passengers since 1933, serving Atlanta, Georgia and the surrounding areas with a fleet of over forty modern motorcoaches.
Ordered as part of Southeastern Stages’ continuing partnership with the South Carolina Department of Transportation and with the assistance of the Federal Transit Administration Intercity Bus Program, these new vehicles represent the continued commitment of Southeastern Stages to deliver modern, convenient and safe intercity service to the residents and visitors of the State of South Carolina and beyond. An additional Buy America compliant vehicle is scheduled for delivery later this month.
The wheelchair accessible Prevost vehicles are equipped with comfortable seating for 55 passengers and loaded with amenities like reclining seats, footrests, power outlets and wireless internet access. By including important safety features like 3 point seatbelts for every seat, anti-lock braking, electronic stability control, fire suppression systems and Prevost’s Aware adaptive cruise braking system by Bendix, Southeastern features some of the most technologically advanced motorcoaches on the road today.
Mike Dickson, Southeastern Stages president, notes that this is the first time that SES has been able to offer this sort of advanced technology in a Buy America compliant vehicle. Says Dickson, “By loading our buses with technology and teaching our drivers how to avoid situations where we are forced to depend on them, we continue to lead the market in delivering safe, comfortable and affordable bus service.” “These new buses,” Dickson continued, “coupled with our professional operators, will help to ensure that our customers continue to get safely to their destinations.”
