New Flyer has delivered a new fleet of Emission Control Diesel (ECD) buses to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA).
A total of 70 camera and bike rack-equipped buses will be deployed into service at a rate of five buses per week through the fall.
These buses operate under the most stringent engine exhaust emissions regulations.
The first 23 buses delivered were put into service immediately.
Part of the MBTA’s overall commitment to improving bus operations, $750 million has been spent on its buses, including equipment, facilities and maintenance, since 2000.
