Greenville charter company adds first new buses since pandemic
Mercer County based charter bus company Anderson Coach & Travel announced that they acquired three brand new full size coaches for their fleet.
These buses are the first ones they have purchased since the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the American Bus Association, 40 percent of bus companies closed during the Covid-19 pandemic. Anderson was forced to layoff almost its entire staff of 200+ people as buses came to a complete halt for months.
Now in its 86th year of business, Anderson held on as people slowly started traveling again. The organization continues going strong with new 56-passenger buses for guests. The new coaches feature seating in the company colors designed by Evan Anderson, the 3rd generation of Andersons to run the company.
The brand new Prevost H3-45 deluxe motorcoaches will arrive at the company this summer.
The new coaches are ADA accessible, include the most spacious cabin environment in its class, an ergonomically designed leather seating configuration, and unmatched accessibility with the lowest overall height in the industry, meaning easier access to a variety of locations.
The new models feature improved fuel economy of 10 percent, optimal light and temperature control, 110V and USB outlets at each seat, and ample storage options.
The purchase of these three vehicles bring the total of Anderson's entire fleet of motorcoaches to 46 vehicles.
Anderson Coach & Travel is also hiring, and has a training class coming up soon. Those interested can apply here.
