Arrow Stage Lines Makes Small Changes With New Deliveries

Metro Magazine’s 2016 Innovative Operator of the Year, has been notably advancing the design of its motorcoaches over the course of the last 4 years. Arrow Stage Lines’ product design team is dedicated to leveraging new engineering and design ideas to help elevate not only the appearance of the company’s motorcoaches, but also the charter bus customer experience.   Recently, MCI delivered 5 new 2016 MCI J4500 motorcoaches equipped with the company’s next generation seating solution. The Kiel seat option delivers increased legroom, while also maximizing passenger comfort.   “The Kiel seat has been a great option for our passengers,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “The new MCI generations of our motorcoaches all include this seating option.”   The ambient lighting is emasculate in the new MCI’s as well. Blue LED lights eliminate the stainless steel runners that accent the ceiling and parcel racks. The new motorcoaches  include two seat color variations, Arrow Stage Lines’ standard grey, black and luxury brown, black combination. The Kiel seats provide a new backing material, providing for a much better passenger experience. Each seat is equipped with tray tables, aisle handle grips, and seat belts.   Arrow Connect V2.0 is available as an option on each new MCI and can be added to any trip. However, the real changes come with the exterior. “We tried a different color combination and material on the exterior,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ Director of Maintenance, Gene Wordekemper. “It was a little risky, but the finished product is true luxury.”   Arrow Stage Lines has slightly altered the normal color palette and has released a blacked-out motorcoach with gold accents.

Interior Changes For A Unique Charter Bus Experience

Interior Changes For A Unique Charter Bus Experience

On the exterior, the new Arrow Stage Lines’ VanHool motorcoaches look similar to the charter bus company’s normal high-end vehicles. The big change comes when you step into the interior.   Arrow Stage Lines is known for placing a large emphasis on the customer experience, but until now, has never drastically changed the engineering inside the motorcoach. The most recent change by the 2016 Innovative Operator of the Year, was  its next generation Kiel seating, exclusive on MCI models, to enhance legroom and increase the modernization of the interior .    “We have always made modifications to coaches,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl, “like moving seating arrangements and adding capacity, but this new modification really opens up the entire motorcoach.”  The new Arrow Stage Lines’ VanHool motorcoaches feature a contoured parcel rack. This allows for one of the largest entryways in  the industry, while also providing passengers in the front  with the largest flat screen TVs in the Arrow Stage Lines charter bus fleet. The new design brings gorgeous ambient LED lighting, rounded staircase, and luxury seating.    “It really commands your attention when you experience this new entryway,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ Director of Maintenance Gene Wordekemper. “It truly is a unique motorcoach design, and we believe customers are going to really enjoy this new feature.”  The welcoming experience is a big emphasis for the company, and the new VanHool models provide an excellent first impression. The plush grey and black leather seating paired with the light interior and wood floors; create a phenomenal experience for both day travel and evening adventures. The Arrow Stage Lines’ VanHools come equipped with Arrow Connect...
