Nova Bus boosts York Region Transit BRT fleet

Posted on April 14, 2010

Ontario, Canada's York Region Transit (YRT) ordered 15 Nova LFS Artic articulated buses valued at $14 million, with annual options extending until 2014. The high-capacity vehicles are set to be delivered in late 2010.

Nova Bus will provide vehicles with advanced styling and factory-installed Intelligent Transport System (ITS) features specially tailored for Viva, YRT's bus rapid transit (BRT) system. Combined with the LFS Artic's proven performance and reliability, onboard information tools will ensure maximum productivity and help operating firm Veolia provide optimal service.

Since launching production of the LFS Artic, Nova Bus has been awarded contracts for rapid-transit type buses in cities such as New York, Halifax, Quebec, Montreal and Saskatoon.
