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. With the delivery of these brand new 2018 MCI J4500 motorcoaches, they really are showing the world how they are setting the standard in motorcoach transportation. “The interiors of these new Arrow motorcoaches are sure to blow you away when you walk inside,” said Arrow Stage Lines COO, Luke Busskohl. “With theme lighting, custom Arrow Stage Lines Kiel seats, and a redesigned back restroom and window, your charter bus experience will be like nothing ever before.”  The ambient lighting in these new motorcoaches is something that the charter bus industry has never seen before. New theme lighting designs allow Arrow Stage Lines to customize the color of the lights inside the entire motorcoach to fit the customers needs. This is all accompanied by bright LED spot lights next to the parcel racks which help with lighting the way as you walk down the aisle. The new motorcoaches also showcase the brand new Kiel seat, which provides great comfort while traveling down the road as well as being very appealing to the eye. Each seat is equipped with tray tables, aisle handle grips, seat belts, and 110v plug-ins.  “The evolution of motorcoaches has come a long way since Arrow Stage Lines started in 1928,” said Arrow Stage Lines CEO, Steve...

Arrow Stage Lines and Employees Complete a Series of Green Certification Programs

Arrow Stage Lines, and The Certification for Sustainable Transportation (CST) have announced that 100% of motorcoach operators have completed the CST’s EcoDriver and Idle Free Certification Programs and 100% of their vehicles have been eRating certified. Company officials were pleased with the announcement and expressed their enthusiasm for the program. Arrow Stage Lines COO Luke Busskohl said “This program is crucial for us right now. With all of the green initiatives, we are proud to partner with the University of Vermont to put our drivers through the Idle-Free and Eco-Driver training.” The CST is a mission-driven non-for-profit program housed at the University of Vermont. It’s mission is to: reduce greenhouse gas and other harmful emissions, increase energy efficiency, and to promote the use of alternative fuels and new technologies. Similar to how Energy Star works in the appliance sector, the CST accomplishes its work largely through three programs: its eRating vehicle certification, an Eco-Driver certification program, and an Idle-Free driver certification program. Arrow Stage Lines and its employees began the process to have its vehicles and drivers certified in early 2016 and since then, all of their motorcoach operators have completed the CST’s EcoDriver and Idle Free training courses. The driver training courses teach drivers an array of EcoDriving practices as well as how to avoid unnecessary idling. These programs can help drivers save fuel and reduce the environmental impacts of their vehicles. Each qualifying vehicle in the company’s fleet received an eRating certification based on a variety of environmental criteria. The CST’s Director, Dave Kestenbaum, said of Arrow Stage Lines, “We were very pleased with the level of...
