The new 56-passenger Van Hool CX45 is powered by a Detroit Diesel engine and features a custom paint and graphics package produced by ABC. Onboard, passengers will enjoy an amenity-rich environment featuring comfort seating with leather inserts and piping detail and woodgrain floors throughout. All the digital conveniences including WiFi, a wireless PA system, six video monitors, and 110V outlets are offered at all seats. In addition, cupholders, magazine nets, and enclosed overhead parcel storage give passengers organized stowage for personal items and greater comfort.
Founded over 35 years ago by Dave and Irene Swartzentrubber, the family-owned and operated business is now in its second generation with son, Wendyl at the helm of operations management.
“Pioneer Trails has been a mainstay within the Amish community for generations, and adding the new CX45 to our fleet helps us continue to deliver a first-rate transportation experience to our loyal customers,” said General Manager Wendyl Swartzentrubber.
“The Swartzentrubber family has a previous history in the automotive body business, and that level of detail transfers to their motorcoach operation,” said ABC Companies Senior Account Executive Pete Bachrach. “They run a meticulous fleet and we worked together to integrate unique options that reflect the high standards of their operation.”
ABC Companies works closely with the company to provide after-sale support including parts and warranty support, financial services and mobile technician service as requested by Pioneer Trails.
“Our focus is on helping Pioneer Trails to achieve their goals,” says Bachrach. “Whether that means supporting their growth with premiere Van Hool equipment or helping them support their fleet to a high-performance standard, ABC Companies is excited to continue building a strong relationship with this outstanding company.”
In other news, Continental Charters of Houston has taken delivery of its first Van Hool CX45 coach from ABC Companies. The family-owned and operated company is a premium transportation provider, offering tour and charter service for large group travel throughout the state of Texas and to any destination nationwide and Canada.
“ABC is very proud to collaborate with Jose Morales and his team, and we’re committed to supporting Continental’s needs over the lifetime of their Van Hool investment,” said ABC Companies Senior Account Manager Greg Gates.
Gates worked with Continental Owner Morales to create a unique coach that features a pearl-white paint scheme on the coach exterior and chrome side mirrors to maximize curb appeal. Inside, custom Amaya GT luxury seating featuring two-tone leatherette in tan and blue, with extra-tufting creates a plush interior cabin. Modified parcel racks, magazine nets, and cupholders offer convenient stowage for passengers and offer an unobstructed view for passengers toward the front of the coach. Additionally, digital amenities include 110V charging ports at passenger seats, two 23-inch monitors and four 15-inch monitors. A rear-window and woodgrain floors throughout add to the spacious, modern interior styling.
“Continental is well known in the Houston area for providing stellar service while operating well-maintained vehicles,” said Gates. “I have no doubt that adding this first new Van Hool CX45 to the fleet will help Continental to grow to the next level.”
