TransLink, the Greater Vancouver (British Columbia) Transportation Authority, has selected New Flyer to build and deliver up to 95 40-foot, CNG transit buses.
The base order is for 73 vehicles with a contract value of C$30 million.
“We’ve seen our transit ridership jump by over 20% in the last three years and this bus order is aimed at getting more service on the road by next September, “ said TransLink Chair Doug McCallum.
New Flyer has been providing transit buses to the city of Vancouver for more than 30 years.
The new buses will be delivered in mid-2006.
