New Flyer of America Inc. announced an order from Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) for 12 60-foot articulated New Flyer Xcelsior diesel-electric hybrid buses. The order converts 12 buses from the option backlog to firm orders.

The buses will be propelled by low-emission, hybrid technologies to reduce air pollution and help WMATA achieve its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The articulated, 60-foot Xcelsior buses also deliver high-capacity transit along key WMATA routes, with 115 passenger capacity. Funding was supported by Federal Transit Administration grants.

New Flyer has delivered nearly 1,400 buses to WMATA since 2001, including electric hybrids, zero-emission battery-electric, and low-emission compressed natural gas.
