Conn.'s SEAT adding 11 more New Flyer Xcelsior buses

Posted on November 22, 2017

The Southeast Area Transit District (SEAT), through the State of Connecticut, exercised an option with New Flyer for five Xcelsior® clean diesel, 40-foot heavy-duty transit buses, and six Xcelsior® clean diesel, 35-foot heavy-duty transit buses, which will be converted from New Flyer’s backlog to a firm order. There are 206 40-foot heavy-duty transit buses remaining in the backlog in the State of Connecticut contract.

The order, which was supported with federal, state, and local funding, is part a fleet revitalization effort initiated by SEAT in 2017.

“We are proud to have supported Southeast Area Transit District in its revitalization initiative,” said Wayne Joseph, president, New Flyer of America. “As the district plans for future growth, New Flyer will continue providing safe, effective, and outstanding public transportation to help enhance the quality of life in Southeastern Connecticut.”

The Southeast Area Transit District is a multi-municipal public agency, serving ten member towns in Connecticut that include East Lyme, Griswold, Groton, Ledyard, Lisbon, Montville, New London, Norwich, Stonington, and Waterford.
