New Flyer to supply 180 buses for Edmonton Transit, Winnipeg Transit

Posted on August 17, 2017

New Flyer Industries Canada ULC, the Canadian subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., announced that the City of Edmonton awarded New Flyer with a contract for 110 Xcelsior® clean diesel, 40-foot heavy-duty transit buses, as well as options to purchase an additional 120 buses. The new award will add a total of 230 equivalent units to New Flyer’s firm and option backlog.

The buses will be deployed on the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) network starting 2018, supporting routes that move more than 300,000 people per day. Edmonton's replacement of aging fleet vehicles with more efficient, air-conditioned models supports an ETS goal of transforming the transit experience.

“For over 20 years we have supported Edmonton’s innovative growth and development with New Flyer buses,” said New Flyer President/CEO Paul Soubry. “We are proud to support Edmonton’s continued transformation as it expands public transit infrastructure, and focuses on clean energy, sustainability, and safe, accessible public transportation.”

Also announced, the City of Winnipeg, acting through Winnipeg Transit, awarded New Flyer a contract extension for 70 Xcelsior® clean diesel, 40-foot heavy-duty transit buses, which will be converted from New Flyer’s option backlog to a firm order.

The buses will be deployed on the Winnipeg Transit network in 2018, which moves nearly four million bus riders per month in the city, outpacing national growth rates. The purchase, which utilizes the Canadian Government’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund, supports Winnipeg Transit’s focus on enhancing sustainable transit and transportation solutions.
