New Flyer to supply 40-ft. CNG buses to Calif.

Posted on December 12, 2013

New Flyer Industries Inc. announced the City of Glendale, Calif., took delivery of 10, 40-foot low-floor compressed natural gas (CNG) buses.

The 10 buses were options under an existing contract signed in September 2008 for up to 90, 40-foot heavy-duty CNG buses. There are no units remaining in this New Flyer five-year contract that expired in September 2013.

Since 2001, the City of Glendale has purchased 40 New Flyer low-floor buses, including these 10 new buses. These buses will be used on Glendale Beeline where the fleet is now entirely composed of New Flyer buses.

New Flyer`s low-floor transit buses provide step-free entrance ways, offering improved passenger accessibility and maneuverability.

The Glendale buses have also been built with the most advanced engine cooling system built by EMP (Engineered Machined Products), using electronically controlled fans. These fans are designed to significantly improve engine cooling, increase fuel economy, reduce emissions and increase overall operating efficiencies.
