New Flyer wins Milwaukee contract

Posted on February 8, 2013

The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) awarded New Flyer Industries a contract for 90 Xcelsior diesel 40-foot heavy-duty buses.

The contract for 90 Xcelsior XD40 buses contains a firm order of 55 buses with options for an additional 35 buses. MCTS and New Flyer have a longstanding partnership, built over the last 16 years with 691 New Flyer buses built over that time span. With an active fleet size today of approximately 409 buses delivered, MCTS currently operates a 100% New Flyer fleet.

"We believe that building a reliable and accessible transit fleet is pivotal to community growth, connecting people to jobs and services, and providing accessibility for persons with disabilities, while reducing traffic congestion and carbon footprint," said Lloyd Grant , Jr., MCTS Managing Director.  "We believe that this New Flyer order is aligned with our path to achieving those goals."

This award was part of the group of firm and option orders for 509 equivalent units received just before the end of 2012.

The 55 buses are anticipated to begin production in the first quarter of 2013. All buses are expected to be delivered by the summer of 2013.
