New Flyer to supply 34 Xcelsiors to Canada

Posted on May 22, 2014

Richmond Hill, Ontario-based York Region Transit exercised options to purchase an additional 34 New Flyer Industries Inc. clean diesel Xcelsior 40-foot heavy duty buses.

The transit system will purchase these buses using an umbrella contract with the procurement department of the province of Ontario. This umbrella bus contract held by New Flyer is a “standing offer” available to public transit agencies across the province, and as a result, New Flyer does not reflect any quantities in its backlog until specific orders are received from a customer.

Since 1989, New Flyer has delivered 225 low floor buses for York Region Transit. With a fleet of approximately 335 heavy duty transit vehicles today, York Region Transit serves an annual ridership of more than 22 million passengers. These additional clean diesel buses will replace buses already in service that have reached the end of their useful economic life.

"New Flyer is proud of the opportunity to provide buses to York Regional Transit for over the past quarter century," said New Flyer President/CEO Paul Soubry. "They are a very progressive transit operator and since 1989, have progressed with New Flyer as we evolve our product offering from the high-floor to low-floor bus models."

The buses are anticipated to be manufactured in the second quarter of 2014 and delivered by the end of the third quarter of 2014.
