The buses were built at New Flyer's St. Cloud manufacturing plant, which employees more than 600 people from the area. In addition, New Flyer has recently relocated three members of its executive team and their families to St. Cloud.
The new, 35-foot clean diesel buses feature upgraded styling and continuous flush windows and will be used in regular transit service beginning this summer, replacing aging, less efficient buses.
St. Cloud Metro Bus has 33 large heavy-duty transit buses and 22 paratransit vehicles in its fleet and reported record ridership levels in 2009.
