New Flyer of America Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., announced the New York City Transit Authority (NYCT) awarded the company with a contract for an additional 377 Xcelsior® 40-foot, heavy-duty transit buses.

The contract, which includes 367 clean diesel and 10 diesel-electric powered Xcelsior buses, will deploy buses into the NYCT network over the next two years as part of its 2015-2019 Capital Program. The Capital Program’s mandate is to rejuvenate and expand the NYCT public transportation fleet across the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which operates subways, buses, commuter trains, bridges, and tunnels to transport over two billion riders per year.

“Since 1988, New Flyer has delivered over 2,300 buses to NYCT,” said Wayne Joseph, president of New Flyer of America. “As NYCT rebuilds and expands its transportation infrastructure, New Flyer will deploy buses with enhanced safety and comfort, better driver visibility, pedestrian turn warning, Wi-Fi, and USB ports to improve the bus rider experience.”
