MCI Coach Electric Yankee Line’s MCI J4500 CHARGE at the US Open

Yankee Line, a luxury bus and motorcoach operator based in Boston and ground transportation provider for the 2022 US Open, announced its partnership with the 2022 US Open and Motor Coach Industries (MCI) to operate the first zero-emission electric motorcoach for attendee shuttle service.

The zero-emission motorcoach shuttled the nearly 30,000 attendees daily between Forest Hills MBTA Station and The Country Club during the June 16-19 event. The 52-seat luxury electric motorcoach operated a full 15-hour shift with a single charge each day of the US Open, according to Yankee Line.

“Yankee Line is excited to have partnered with the United States Golf Association (USGA) and MCI to operate the fully-electric motorcoach which assisted in transporting thousands of attendees during this year’s US Open,” states Mike Costa, from Yankee Line. “We believe this partnership helps to pave a greener and more sustainable future within the transportation industry. We’re excited to work with the USGA and our other valued clients to continue to explore options to expand usage of this new zero-emission technology.”

“MCI was proud to partner with Yankee Line to showcase the luxury J4500 CHARGE at such a large public event,” said MCI Vice President Private Sector Sales Patricia Ziska. “The battery-electric CHARGE eliminates emissions while delivering high-capacity luxury coach transportation, a natural choice to support the USGA’s recent announcement that this US Open was the most sustainable in championship history.”
