Vicinity Motor Corp. announced the receipt of a new CAD $3.5 million purchase order from North American Private Transit Operator First Transit for eight Vicinity Classic buses, according to the company's press release.
Per the terms of the supply agreement, First Transit has ordered eight of the Company’s 35-foot Clean-Diesel Vicinity Classic buses for delivery in 2022.
“Our Vicinity Classic buses continue to prove their popularity within the North American transit market as we continue to attract exciting orders from our continent-wide base of satisfied customers,” said William Trainer, founder/CEO of Vicinity Motor Corp. “Our ability to grow alongside our customers and fulfill many of their transit needs as a one-stop-shop is invaluable, particularly as many transit authorities begin to evaluate electric vehicles to supplement or replace their conventional diesel fleets in service today."
The Vicinity buses will service the city of Yellowknife, Canada.
“I look forward to working closely with the team at First Transit to deliver these vehicles by end-of-year. Our goal is to improve the quality of public transit to the citizens of Yellowknife while concurrently reducing operating costs for transit operators – thereby creating sustainable value not only for our shareholders, but for all stakeholders,” said Trainer.
