Orion wins bus orders

Posted on December 17, 2007

MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) and the City of Ottawa (OC Transpo) have placed orders totaling 1,052 Orion VII Next Generation diesel-electric hybrid transit buses, powered by BAE Systems’ HybriDrive diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system, from Daimler Buses North America.  

NYCT and the MTA Bus Company will take delivery of 850 Orion VII Next Generation diesel-electric hybrid transit buses, which will bring the MTA’s total diesel-electric hybrid bus fleet to almost 1,700 units, making it the largest diesel-electric hybrid fleet in the world.  

OC Transpo has ordered up to 202 Orion VII Next Generation hybrid diesel-electric transit buses, making it the third largest hybrid bus fleet in Canada.  

Both transit authorities are scheduled to take delivery of the new buses in 2010.
