Austin's corporate elite and race fans will travel in style as R & R Limousine and Bus
adds four new MCI® J4500 coaches to its fast-growing lineup
SCHAUMBURG, IL — September 21, 2012 — With Austin's first-ever Formula One race in November and new additions to the Texas capitol's business community every year, R & R Limousine and Bus is gearing up with the purchase of four new MCI J4500 coaches.
"We like the J4500 because it's reliable and our mechanics find it easy to work on," said Paul Arcediano, R & R's president and founder. MCI's best-selling J4500s will bring R & R's total fleet to 10 MCI coaches and more than 85 other vehicles ranging from town cars to airport shuttle buses. Arcediano credits MCI with supporting his eight-year-old company's advancement in a city that the U.S. Census Bureau ranked in April as the second-fastest growing city in the nation.
"Austin has a lot going for it," said Arcediano, "I see how hard the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce has worked at recruiting the big high-tech firms from Facebook to Google. We also have a number of high-tech startups and the opening of the Circuit of the Americas track in November is a real game changer for Austin." The new track, featuring the area's first Formula One United States Grand Prix competition November 16-18, is expected to bring anywhere from 90,000 to 200,000 people to the metro area each year.
R & R's newest J4500s feature a host of passenger amenities including a spiral stair entryway and tiered theater seating for 56. The coaches come equipped with electronic stability control and other standard safety features, as well as the newest clean-diesel engine technology for near zero emissions.
Arcediano is a native of Louisiana who started his career in radio ad sales in Baton Rouge. He moved to Austin to serve some of his clients who were based there, thinking his next stop on his career path would be Los Angeles. Instead, he fell in love with Austin. With a desire to own his own business, Arcediano saw an unmet transportation need, starting Rockin' Ride, a party-bus concept, in 2004. Limousine service soon followed and the company formed R & R Limousine and Bus in 2007 with the arrival of its first J4500 coach.
Arcediano stuck with MCI because he appreciates Brian Hill and the rest of the MCI team in Texas who supported him through his growth spurts. The company continues to grow through new corporate contracts and acquisitions. R & R also has full-service operation in San Antonio. But Austin is home — the company recently moved to a 6.5-acre site on U.S. Highway 183 near the new track. To learn more visit www.rrlimobus.com.
