Halifax Metro Transit to add 45 Nova LFS Artics

Posted on November 4, 2009

Nova Bus was awarded an order by Halifax Regional Municipality's Metro Transit service for 15 Nova LFS Artic articulated vehicles valued at $10.4 million dollars, to be delivered in mid-2010, plus options on a further 30 buses over two years.

With more than 300 vehicles and a total annual ridership of more than 18.5 million, Halifax's Metro Transit is the largest transit authority in Atlantic Canada. Their dual focus on continuously enhancing service levels and greening their fleet means most of the buses will be set to providing expanded service to the Halifax region. Upgrading to articulated vehicles will also translate into increased capacity on several routes.

Nova LFS Artic features include air conditioning, large windows for maximum light, wide doors and aisles for easy access and passenger flow. The vehicles are also designed for performance, fuel efficiency and productivity; most importantly, they will be powered by the latest generation of clean diesel engine systems, to comply with the EPA's strict 2010 emissions standards.
