Nova receives $10M order from Honolulu

Posted on March 11, 2010

The City of Honolulu placed an order valued at $10 million for 24 Nova LFS buses, with options on additional vehicles. The buses will be assembled in Nova Bus' upstate New York plant and delivered in late 2010.

The City of Honolulu and Oahu Transit Services provides over 72.5 million rides annually to the community of Honolulu.

Since opening its facilities in Plattsburgh, N.Y., Nova Bus has been awarded contracts totaling more than $120 million from transit authorities such as MTA/New York City Transit and CT Transit. Nova Bus' presence in New York has led to the creation of more than 250 direct jobs and five times as many indirect jobs through productive relationships with over 150 suppliers.

The Nova LFS is engineered around a unique stainless steel structure, which presents a distinct advantage in areas where corrosion is a significant concern, such as Honolulu, according to company statement. The bus is designed with riders in mind, with large, 360-degree windows for maximum natural light, and wide doors and aisles for easy access. Most importantly, the vehicles will feature the latest generation of clean diesel engines that meet strict EPA 2010 emissions regulations.
