Vancouver adds more than 300 Nova buses

Posted on February 11, 2010

BC Transit and TransLink recently took delivery of more than 300 new buses from Nova Bus, of which 141 are hybrid buses.

 

The two major British Columbia transit authorities, TransLink and BC Transit, were assigned management of bus transportation during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The companies expanded and renewed their city bus fleets.

 

Combined, the companies ordered 311 Nova LFS city buses, which were delivered in 2009 and at the beginning of 2010. Of the total, TransLink has taken delivery of 141 hybrid-drive Nova LFS HEV buses, with significantly lower fuel consumption and thus lower emissions of carbon and other pollutants.

 

"BC Transit's ability to provide enhanced service levels in February relies on the support from our partners," said Manuel Achadinha, President and CEO of BC Transit. "Nova Bus will help us move over two million customers in the Sea to Sky corridor."
