The City of Edmonton, the owner and operator of Edmonton Transit Service (ETS), awarded New Flyer a contract for 46 40-foot Xcelsior® clean diesel heavy-duty transit buses, which have been converted from New Flyer’s backlog and are currently in delivery.

The contract follows multiple prior orders from ETS, with New Flyer having delivered over 1,100 buses to the agency since 1992, and is in addition to the 35 60-foot Xcelsior clean-diesel transit buses (70 equivalent units or EUs) recently purchased by the City of Edmonton and announced in December 2019.

ETS continues to refresh its bus fleet as the city focuses on improving and expanding efficient mobility through its ETS Annual Service Plan and 2020 priorities.
