AC Transit rolls out New Flyer artics

Posted on August 15, 2013

Last week, Oakland, Calif.-based AC Transit launched the next iteration of “A Better Ride” by placing the first of the New Flyer 60-foot articulated buses into service on lines 40 and 57.

Designed to handle our heaviest passenger loads, the agency will deploy 23 of these streamlined buses in August and September.

The New Flyer low-floor coaches seat 52 people, with additional room for standees, and are manufactured in the U.S. They have better fuel mileage and decreased noise pollution compared to the buses they are replacing and also come with air conditioning.

The new vehicles also boast AC Transit’s distinctive new green seats, which received great reviews on its Gillig buses.

The launch of these new buses, coupled with the March launch of our 40-foot Gilligs and the continued implementation of service and performance-enhancing initiatives throughout the agency, help advance the agency’s goal of providing “a better ride” to its passengers.
