Grande West's U.S. distributor, Alliance Bus Group (ABG), received an order from an undisclosed private shuttle operator for nine Vicinity buses to be delivered in the second quarter of 2019.
”This order furthers the Vicinity footprint in the U.S, private shuttle market,” said VP, Sales and Marketing, Rob Mowat. “I will continue to work closely with ABG to continue to convert our large pipeline of potential orders into firm orders. The Vicinity is a clear winner for both public and private operators where capital investment and operating costs can be saved by ‘Right-Sizing’ fleets.”
The orders are already included in the previously disclosed backlog as part of the order from ABG for 100 buses announced on Oct. 10, 2017. Current total firm orders included in the backlog are for approximately 180 buses valued at over $46.2 million. Deliveries will vary from quarter to quarter to account for different build specifications, customer acceptance and revenue recognition.
