Phoenix orders 120 40-ft. New Flyers

Posted on April 4, 2013

The City of Phoenix Public Transit Division exercised options assigned from a New Flyer contract with another Arizona transit agency for 120 40-foot low-floor compressed natural gas (CNG) heavy-duty buses.

New Flyer has built low-floor buses for the City of Phoenix dating back to 1994 and has built 267 buses for them since that time. This newly awarded contract is for the New Flyer low-floor CNG model and will replace liquid natural gas buses currently in active service on dedicated service routes.

The buses will also be the first CNG buses for the City of Phoenix and will be equipped with features such as an electric fan cooling system. All New Flyer buses are supported by New Flyer’s warranty, service and lifetime customer care programs.

The 120 buses are anticipated to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2013 and will be completely manufactured and assembled at New Flyer of America’s St. Cloud, Minn. manufacturing facility. All buses are expected to be delivered in 2014.
