Nova wins $80M, 13 municipality Metrolinx contract

Posted on November 14, 2014

Under an $80 million agreement with Ontario, Canada’s Metrolinx, who coordinates transit vehicle purchasing initiatives for 13 municipalities, Nova Bus will deliver up to 188, 40-foot buses and 15 articulated buses between 2015 and 2017.

The new order includes 27 buses with deliveries scheduled to start in 2015. The joint procurement also includes options for future orders until 2017 — quantities up to 188 40 footer buses and up to 15 articulated buses — to meet demand.

Since vehicle specifications vary greatly from one city to another, the Metrolinx-Nova Bus agreement comprises various types of propulsion technologies, such as clean diesel, diesel-electric hybrid and compressed natural gas.

The 13 participating municipalities are Barrie, Burlington, Durham Region, Hamilton, Kingston, Milton, North Bay, Oakville, Sarnia, St. Catharines, Welland, Windsor and York Region. Nova Bus is proud to establish relationship with nine new clients, given that Nova Bus has previously delivered buses to Durham Region, Hamilton, Windsor and York Region.

More than ever, Nova Bus is now well established in the province, serving a total of 31 transit authorities across Ontario, the company said.
