N.Y. agencies order 92 Orion VIIs

Posted on January 15, 2010

Daimler Buses North America announced it has received orders totaling 92 Orion VII transit buses, including five Orion VII diesel-electric hybrid transit buses, from three transit agencies in New York. Deliveries are set for late summer and fall of 2010.

Suffolk County Transit, on Long Island, placed an order for 81 Orion VII clean-diesel transit buses — 15 40-foot buses, 50 35-foot buses and 16 30-foot buses. This marks its first order of Orion VII transit buses.

Ulster County Area Transit (UCAT) placed an order for three additional Orion VII 35-foot diesel-electric hybrid buses, bringing its current production order to five buses. UCAT provides services in Ulster County, with limited service to Orange County and connecting service to Dutchess County.

Meanwhile, the Dutchess County LOOP Bus System ordered four 40-foot Orion VII clean-diesel transit buses, along with two 40-foot Orion VII diesel-electric hybrid transit buses. LOOP provides a variety of bus services throughout Dutchess County including fixed-route services and demand response services like Dial-A-Ride and Paratransit.

LOOP currently has the Orion V operating in its fleet, but this order marks its first Orion VII transit buses.
