New Flyer Industries Inc. announced the N.Y.-based Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (RGRTA) exercised options for 19, 40-foot clean diesel powered Xcelsior buses.

The 19 option buses are exercised options from a five-year contract. Once the options are exercised, 77 options remain under this contract and are included in New Flyer’s backlog.

Since 1999, New Flyer has proudly delivered 126 buses to RGRTA in both 40-foot and 60-foot lengths. RGRTA has 405 active buses in their fleet providing services to various local counties and supporting a ridership of more than 18 million annually.
