As North America’s largest manufacturer of transit buses and motorcoaches with No. 1 status in parts distribution, New Flyer plans to make a significant influence throughout APTA EXPO.

On tap for Tuesday, Booth 7827:

11 a.m.: New Flyer introduces its next-generation battery-electric Xcelsior with a celebration and noteworthy presentation from its sustainable transportation leadership team. New Flyer produces all three types of zero-emission buses (ZEBs) — battery-electric, trolley-electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric. The Xcelsior’s unique design and flexible manufacturing system allows transit agencies to select the specific charging method, infrastructure, and range to fit their specific needs.

1:30 p.m.: New Flyer offers a sneak preview of its new Alabama-based Vehicle Innovation Center (VIC), the industry’s first innovation lab dedicated to the advancement of bus and coach technology, and the only one of its kind in North America. Development of the VIC is led in partnership by New Flyer and MCI, featuring interactive learning experiences that highlight all of New Flyer’s advances in electric and autonomous vehicle technologies.

Today, New Flyer operates 31 facilities in the U.S. and Canada, including fabrication, manufacturing, distribution, and service centers. Employment exceeds 5,600 team members, with half employed in the U.S. New Flyer employs more American workers than any other transit manufacturer in North America.
