DELAWARE EXPRESS GETS MCI WITH LUXURY FEATURES NEWARK, DE — Delaware Express, a charter and tour operator along the East- ern Seaboard, took delivery in February of four new 2019 J4500 models. Delaware Express owner Gerry Fren- ze, whose company also provides shut- tle and limousine services, was drawn to the J4500's redesigned interior space providing the most seating room in its class in addition to leading-edge safety technology and mechanical advantages that assure low operating costs. These include the 2019 J4500s new swing-out styled electric e-fan cooling package that provides full roadside engine ac- cess and fuel efficiency improvements up to 3% annually. "Passenger comfort and safety features are paramount," says Frenze, who has been a loyal MCI customer since 2001. "We see great value in new vehicles and standardization of equip- ment." Frenze also says it's important to keep a young fleet, with more than three-quarters of his 30 motorcoaches less than five years old. MCI STAFFING UP CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER HAYWARD, CA — MCI on March 1 named Brian Jablonski as the new service center manager for its flagship San Francisco Bay Area MCI Sales and Service Center. The Hay- ward location is handling a growing service market of private and public transit systems, including Silicon Val- ley employee shuttles. Jablonski brings a 23-year career in charter, automotive, and aviation fleet maintenance and management to the position. He will be responsible for keeping the year-old Hayward center at full capacity, establishing strong rela- tionships with operators, and overseeing a team of factory trained MCI techni- cians. He reports to Ron Miller, director of MCI Service Centers. MCI, which invested nearly $3 million in the two-story, 34,000-square-foot Hayward complex in 2017, is enhanc- ing its services for area operators. "We're engaged with major employers in Silicon Valley that operate private transportation systems," Miller said. "These coaches need to be maintained on a daily basis, and that requires our operational model to be in tandem with our operators." The Bay Area Service Center will offer flexible service hours, complete coach maintenance agreements, and access to on-call MCI mobile mainte- nance assistance. Information: www.mcicoach.com
