“We have admired Prevost coaches for years but had never considered purchasing one because we had a great relationship with another coach provider,” said Georgia Coach Lines president and CEO, Clarence E. Cox, III. “We are excited and so far, we have received excellent service and communication during the delivery period.”
The coach, dubbed #134, is equipped with Prevost’s exclusive Cloud One seating, 360-degree cameras, eMirror technology, and a premium, onboard entertainment system offering passengers access to Wi-Fi, the latest movies, TV shows, and more. “This coach has so many amenities on it, and we look forward to introducing it to our clients real soon,” said Cox.
Decked out in Georgia Coach Lines’ signature grey and green, the new unit was on display for the outdoor coach presentations at the GMOA-AMA-SCMA Regional Meeting where operators and motorcoach industry partners in attendance had the privilege of being the first group to take a ride. Cox has #134 scheduled for a special trip before it begins regular service providing group transportation in the Atlanta area. “Our first over the road experience will be filled with friends and family as we visit our neighboring state of Tennessee,” he said.
“We are so honored to welcome the entire Georgia Coach Lines team to the Prevost family,” said Prevost VP of new coach sales and funding, Brad Wiese. “The strength of the Prevost aftermarket network was a key factor in their purchase, and we are proud to be their partner.” The Prevost service network is the largest in the motorcoach industry with coverage from coast to coast in both the U.S. and Canada. Prevost provides end-to-end support through its team of customer support managers, OEM-owned service center locations, and mobile service vehicles strategically placed throughout North America.
Georgia Coach Lines has always had a family-focus and began operations with used motorcoaches in February 1985 in Atlanta under the leadership of Cox’s father and uncle. Upon his uncle’s death in 2017, Cox and his wife, Wendy Hollingsworth-Cox took over the business and have since expanded the fleet to nine coaches. They also opened a new facility in Fayetteville, GA in April 2020 where their operations are headquartered.
Cox plays a very active role in the motorcoach industry as Georgia Motorcoach Operators Association president, United Motorcoach Association sitting board member, and African American Motorcoach Council chairman for the American Bus Association. Both Cox and Hollingsworth-Cox believe in giving back to their local community and regularly distribute food and clothing to those in need through a partnership with a local nonprofit, Caring for Others. Georgia Coach Lines was also instrumental during the celebration of life for friend and civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) as they transported friends, family, and staff across the Southeast civil rights trail in July 2020.
