Awesome bus, it is nice to see MCI back with Greyhound. All is right in the universe again.

Nice pics! Also, the scheme fits them well. I like the fact that the "wheel liners" are black as well.

Great catch. Can't wait to see some of these new MCIs in the Northeast.

BTW, what's the engine/transmission combo on these buses?

Great catch Mel...I hope they make their way east soon. I can understand why they're heading to Chicago, possibly by way of St. Paul, first (nearest hub to Pembina).

MCI website reports they have a Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine with an Allison B500 Transmission.

Do these have a roomier seat pitch like the ones in the Northeast ?

Yes - like the Prevosts, these only have 50 seats.

Now those are some sexy looking buses. You think their Bolt Bus fleet will get the same treatment?

Short answer: no.

More complicated answer: yes.

They will - however the word on the street is they are coming from Peter Pan and not directly from Greyhound.
