Grande West Transportation announced a new Vicinity order for approximately $6 million.

Through a competitive bid process, Grande West received its first public transit order in the province of Quebec for a total of 15 Vicinity buses to be delivered in 2018 to the Société de transport du Saguenay (STS), the Société de transport de Lévis (STL), and the Société de transport de Trois-Rivières (STR).

“We are very excited to welcome STS, STL, and STTR to our growing list of customers. We believe there is huge potential for ‘right sizing’ of public transit fleets in the province of Quebec after many decades of buying mostly larger 40-foot buses,” said Jean-Marc Landry, VP, business development, of Grande West. “Grande West and its exclusive dealer Autobus de la Cité in Eastern Canada are ideally suited to meet the needs of the Quebec transit market.”
