New Flyer to provide 10 60-foot buses for ABQ Ride

Posted on December 5, 2018

The City of Albuquerque has issued a contract to purchase 10 clean-diesel 60-foot Xcelsior heavy-duty transit buses (20 equivalent units or EUs) from New Flyer of America Inc. with an option for additional units in the future.

The City of Albuquerque Transit Department (ABQ Ride) is responsible for all bus and paratransit operations in the Albuquerque metro area. The city issued a recommendation of award for 60-foot, articulated, five-door clean diesel buses to New Flyer under a 2016 solicitation. The purchase of these buses and their special features will allow their use throughout the Albuquerque transit system.

New Flyer has over 30 years’ experience manufacturing high-capacity articulated buses, with over 7,000 delivered since 1988. New Flyer’s BRT buses are available with the widest range of drive systems in North America. New Flyer is currently the only manufacturer with successful completion of the Federal Transportation Administration Altoona Testing requirements for 60-foot articulated buses; ensuring the buses exceed safety and quality requirements thereby qualifying for federal funding.
