The City of Detroit and the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) awarded New Flyer a new order for 25 40-foot and five 60-foot clean diesel Xcelsior® heavy-duty transit buses (35 equivalent units or “EUs”). This is the second order from a five-year contract for 200 buses signed by DDOT in 2017, leaving options to purchase a total of 140 buses over the remaining three years.

The order will help DDOT implement their strategic transportation plan, which includes rebranding, revitalizing, and increasing bus service to provide a better, more reliable transportation network for a revitalized Detroit.

The new buses feature clean diesel engines, which use a four-step process to filter harmful emissions from the exhaust. Additionally, the buses will offer passengers the opportunity to stay connected with free Wi-Fi.

The Detroit Department of Transportation is the largest public transit agency in Michigan and serves Detroit and neighboring cities, including Dearborn, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Harper Woods, Livonia, Redford Township, River Rouge, and Southfield. DDOT provides transit service to around 80,000 riders daily.
