Canadian agency adds 2 Nova LFX Artics

Posted on November 25, 2013

Saskatchewan, Canada’s Saskatoon Transit elected to add two Nova LFX Artic buses to its fleet.

Delivered in late October, the high-capacity buses will primarily serve two of the city’s main transit hubs — the University of Saskatchewan and the downtown core.

“Our buses have been in service in Saskatoon since 2010,” said Jean-Pierre Baracat, President of Nova Bus. “This new order represents an excellent opportunity to enhance our existing partnership and to continue to support Saskatoon in delivering great service.”

Saskatoon’s LFX buses are built on a proven platform that combines a distinctive look with reliability and high performance. They are equipped with Nova eCooling, a smart engine cooling system that provides significant fuel savings and enhances serviceability. They also feature comfortable seating and a sleek design, including distinctive roof lines, flush windows and large capacity doors.

The Nova LFX is set to boost safety for drivers and riders. Test results show that it surpasses the industry’s crashworthiness requirements. The vehicle’s structure is designed to create a protective cell for the driver. It is also equipped with strong stainless steel side-impact barriers to increase safety for passengers.

Nova Bus is the only manufacturer to include street-level structural reinforcement at the rear of its vehicles. Not only does it protect the vehicle’s powertrain, but it also prevents costly repairs to expensive bus components located at the rear. Other standard equipment on the LFX includes balanced all-wheel disc brakes, to minimize stopping distance, and a single windshield for optimal visibility.
