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.
