Fla. Transit orders 50 new NABI buses

Posted on August 31, 2011

[IMAGE]BCT-60BRT-2.jpg[/IMAGE]To better serve its 410 square mile service area, Florida-based Broward County Transit placed an order for 50 new buses with North American Bus Industries (NABI), of Anniston, Ala. T

The initial delivery, which is under way, will bring the total number of NABI buses to in Broward's fleet to 170 buses. The new buses will consist of both 40-foot and 60-foot BRT articulated buses.

All of the new buses will have cleaner burning diesel engines and many will benefit from Allison Hybrid propulsion technology. The new buses will include energy saving features, such as electrified cooling and A/C componentry, as well as passenger friendly seating.

In addition to using the new buses as replacements for retiring vehicles, Broward County is initiating specialized services that will use the highly styled BRT vehicles. These buses with their advanced aerodynamic style will be easily distinguishable from the regular fleet buses.

Many of the new buses will have features such as Wi-Fi capability and individual charging stations for customer laptops and other devices, thereby making the commute both pleasant and productive.
