Edmonton Transit adds 9 New Flyers

Edmonton Transit approved the purchase of nine Xcelsior diesel 40-foot heavy-duty buses from New Flyer Industries Inc.

Since 1993, New Flyer has built 900 buses for Edmonton Transit.

“New Flyer is privileged to have the opportunity to continue to build a relationship with Edmonton Transit, that spans so many milestones for both of us,” said New Flyer’s President/CEO Paul Soubry. “We mark yet another milestone with this bus award, as this will be the first time Edmonton Transit will be ordering New Flyer’s Xcelsior ‘best-in-class’ model with diesel propulsion.”

The nine buses are anticipated to begin production in the second quarter of 2013 and will be completely manufactured and assembled at New Flyer of America’s St. Cloud, Minn. manufacturing facility. All buses are expected to be delivered in June of 2013.
