Maryland's DOT to add New Flyer clean-diesel buses

Posted on June 12, 2019

The Maryland Department of Transportation issued a new order of 15 40-foot and five 60-foot New Flyer Xcelsior® clean diesel heavy-duty transit buses (25 equivalent units or “EU”) under the State of Washington, Department of Enterprise Services contract.

The buses, which will be operated by the Maryland Department of Transportation Aviation Administration, will be used at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall Airport) to replace older vehicles on continuous shuttle routes between terminals, airport parking facilities, and the BWI Rail Station. New amenities like USB charging ports, Wi-Fi, improved seating, luggage racks, wide doors, and large windows will be installed to enhance the customer experience.

The 60-foot articulated buses will also provide an approximate 50% increase in passenger capacity compared to the smaller transit-style buses currently in service.

Located near downtown Baltimore and approximately 30 miles from Washington, D.C., BWI Marshall Airport is the 22nd busiest airport in America, serving over 25 million passengers annually. The airport’s current parking and rail station fleet is comprised of 40 buses that went into service in 2005.
