Posted on March 17, 2015

New Flyer Industries Inc. announced the Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) awarded the company a contract for up to 305 (425 equivalent units or EUs) heavy-duty 40-foot and 60-foot Xcelsior® compressed natural gas (CNG) buses.

The contract includes a firm order for 35 XN40 and 20 XN60 (75 EUs) Xcelsior buses, with an option for another 150 XN40 and 100 XN60 (350EUs) over the next five years. All buses are to be powered by CNG.

RTC is both the transit authority and the transportation-planning agency for Southern Nevada and specifically Las Vegas. Its mandate includes identification of transportation challenges and implementation of short and long-term resolutions while simultaneously promoting sustainability, air quality improvement, enhanced mobility and increased quality of life in the region.

“We are fortunate to have repeat business from prominent customers like RTC" said New Flyer's President/CEO Paul Soubry. "RTC is one of the leading transit agencies in the United States who is committed to quality and styling, performance and reliability, and to minimizing the environmental footprint. New Flyer is thrilled to have our buses in service in such a high profile community"

Since 1991, New Flyer has delivered 332 buses to RTC, whose current transit fleet consists of approximately 650 buses.
