Nova delivers 2 LFS buses to Iowa

Posted on June 19, 2012

CyRide of Ames, Iowa purchased from Nova Bus two articulated LFS Smart Buses. The buses will be assembled in Nova Bus’ upstate New York plant and delivered in October 2012.

CyRide has decided to expand its fleet profile by introducing the articulated LFS Smart Bus to transport the steadily increasing ridership of the city of Ames and Iowa State University. The LFS Artic is based on the LFS platform and combines a proven track record with the ability to handle high-volume routes.

Like many other Nova Bus business partners, CyRide has opted for Nova Bus’ proprietary advanced electric cooling system that provides up to 18% in fuel savings and significantly reduces maintenance costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The LFS Smart Bus also comes packed with standard features that ensure high performance and competitive lifecycle costs.

CyRide vehicles will also feature its hePEX system, which replaces copper piping with cross-linked polyethylene tubing that is light, easy to maintain and corrosion resistant. The hePEX system significantly reduces lifecycle costs in terms of materials and labor. HePEX tubes are three times lighter than copper, which contributes to a notable reduction in vehicle weight.
