Setra 417

Northeast Charter & Tour adds Setra 417 to fleet
In 2010, Northeast Charter & Tour added the brand new Setra 417 to their fleet of vehicles. The 56-passenger motor coach includes a DVD player, five 16 inch monitors, 110 volt power outlets, Wi-Fi, XM/Sirus radio, reclining seats, front tray tables, foot rests, shades, rear window and lavatory.

As one of the safest motor coaches in Maine, the coach has GPS tracking that provides electronic feedback on how the engine and transmission are performing and a tire monitoring program that shows the driver the tire pressure and temperature of each wheel on the coach.

The motor coach is also environmentally friendly and features a "clean Burn" Detroit Diesel Engine that produces less pollution into the environment and a ZF Transmission which gives the coach better fuel mileage.

New WiFi Technology
All over the road motor coaches from Northeast Charter & Tour and Richards Coach feature WiFi technology. WiFi technology allows travelers to connect a Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant to the Internet.

We use GPS Technology
At Northeast Charter & Tour, 75% of our over the road buses are GPS compliant. This means the location of the bus can be tracked, along with the speed and other safety regulations. The Voyager GPS Tracking System allows information to be securely communicated to a datacenter from a remote vehicle.
