Phoenix’s Valley Metro Regional Public Transportation Authority exercised options for 24 additional New Flyer Xcelsior® 40-foot, compressed natural gas (CNG) heavy-duty transit buses.

The order will replace older buses currently operating on regional routes in support of Valley Metro’s 2016 to 2020 strategic plan to advance the value of transit throughout the metropolitan Phoenix area. The original contract awarded in November 2017 (a joint effort with the City of Phoenix Public Transit), included up to 396 buses over a five-year period, and is supported by funding from both the Federal Transit Administration and local sources. Seventy percent of the vehicles in the Valley Metro fleet are powered by natural gas to support local clean air initiatives.

Valley Metro is the regional public transportation agency that provides coordinated, multimodal transit options to the residents and visitors of greater Phoenix, with 51 million passenger trips on its buses in 2018. Valley Metro, in coordination with its 18 member agencies, plans, constructs, and operates the regional bus and light rail systems and alternative transportation programs for riders of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
