NYCT to add 15 New Flyer CHARGE battery-electric buses

Posted on March 26, 2019

New York City Transit (NYCT) awarded New Flyer with a contract for 15 low floor 60-foot Xcelsior CHARGE™ battery-electric, zero-emission, heavy-duty transit buses (or a total of 30 equivalent units or EUs).

The order supports NYCT’s efforts to develop a cleaner, greener public transportation footprint, which focuses on building greater environmental sustainability, reducing emissions, and modernizing the MTA’s bus fleet. Each bus will leverage New Flyer’s CONNECT 360™ business analytics and reporting tool to optimize performance and operations.

The 60-foot New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE™ buses feature long-range, heavy-duty lithium-ion batteries. New Flyer batteries are designed specifically for rigorous 24/7/365 transit demands of New York City, utilizing American-based battery technology and American-based manufacturing supplied by XALT Energy. The award includes New Flyer providing 16 Siemens 150 kW direct current interoperable chargers with installation, testing, and commissioning to be performed by the recently announced New Flyer Infrastructure Solutions™.

NYCT and the MTA Bus Co. comprise the largest transit agency in North America. Together, they serve an estimated 8.5 million citizens and supports more than 60 million visitors annually.
