Albuquerque adding 10 more 60-foot New Flyer buses

Posted on June 14, 2019

The City of Albuquerque and the City of Albuquerque Transit Department (collectively ABQ RIDE) have executed an option for an additional 10 New Flyer clean-diesel, 60-foot Xcelsior® heavy-duty transit buses (20 equivalent units or “EUs”). The second order is in addition to the 10 clean-diesel, 60-foot Xcelsior buses ordered in December 2018. Options for an additional 10 Xcelsior 60-foot buses remain on the contract.

The bus rapid transit order will be used to enhance ABQ RIDE’s new Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) project with five-door, 132-passenger buses specifically designed for high-capacity transit, providing full accessibility and efficient entry and exit through level platform-to-bus boarding.

ABQ RIDE is the state’s largest public transportation system providing over 13 million passenger trips each year, with new ART routes anticipated to commence operation in 2019. Once operational, the ART will deliver quick and efficient bus service, offering increased dependability and timeliness for passengers and using dedicated lanes to boost the frequency of bus operation.
