Our thoughts go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
We thank our fellow motor coach companies who were able to extend their services to those in need.
We have placed our order for (6) brand-new J-Model 4500 MCI buses. We will stagger them into our fleet, beginning late November, 2017. We are still slated to receive our (7) replacement NJ Transit buses, which service our Doylestown | Flemington | New York route in the third quarter of 2018. These coaches will feature brand new technology and comfort; we can’t wait patiently enough. Until then, we will continue to perform our accelerated maintenance program every 2,500 miles, instead of the industry standard of every 5,000 miles, to ensure they are operating properly. Our coaches are cleaned nightly and minor repairs addressed as they arise. We do rely on you, our daily commuters, to be the eyes and ears of our buses by reporting necessary repairs such as damaged vents, broken seats and light bulbs as detected.
We greatly appreciate your
assistance and thank those who continually utilize our Online Maintenance
Request Form. For those who don’t know, or need a reminder, this online form is
sent directly to our in-house maintenance team, and the coach in question will
receive immediate attention upon returning to our main LVIP location. A
plus is, you’ll hear back from us regarding the issue and we’ll personally let
you know the problem was identified and fixed.
On September 1st the New Jersey State Police Transportation Safety Bureau announced they would begin conducting statewide bus checks as part of their traffic safety and homeland security mission to keep its citizens, and those passing through, safe.
We are advising you that your bus could potentially drive through a check point and be stopped for an inspection. In tandem with the NJ State Police want you to feel safe, which is why we are bring this matter to your attention.
Part of their inspection will include a K-9 handler walking his partner around the bus and a Trooper from their Arson and Bomb Unit alongside a Trooper from their Hazmat Unit; you may even see a P.K.E. Meter.
The safety of our passengers is always our number one priority. We will comply with the inspections, although we do ask for your patience should your bus, en route to your final destination, be pulled over for a safety check during this time. Always keep in mind, the phrase, “If you see something, say something.”™
