RTC of So. Nevada adding 55 New Flyer buses

Posted on September 6, 2018

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) exercised options for two orders with New Flyer of America, one for 40 60-foot compressed natural gas (CNG) and 15 40-foot CNG Xcelsior® heavy-duty transit buses (for a total of 95 equivalent units or “EUs”).

The buses represent executed options from New Flyer’s contract with RTC, which began in 2015. New Flyer has delivered 146 Xcelsior CNG buses to RTC since 2013, of which 81 were high-capacity, 60-foot transit buses.

“New Flyer is proud to be an innovator in the heavy-duty transit bus industry, increasing efficiency and reducing greenhouse gases with versatile propulsion solutions,” said Wayne Joseph, president of New Flyer of America. “We have a great relationship with the RTC and look forward to continuing that partnership with low-emission, high-capacity buses that improve transit mobility while eliminating emissions.”

RTC is a regional entity overseeing public transportation, traffic management, transportation, and funding for Southern Nevada, and delivered over 63 million boardings in 2017 in the greater Las Vegas Valley.
