Omaha Metro adding 10 New Flyer CNG buses

Posted on August 7, 2019

The Transit Authority for the City of Omaha (Metro) has issued a new order for 10 New Flyer compressed natural gas (CNG) Xcelsior® 60-foot, heavy-duty transit buses (20 equivalent units or EUs). The order follows a 2018 purchase of 19 New Flyer buses.

Metro’s low-emission bus order bolsters its vision to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Omaha while supporting the launch of its new bus rapid transit (BRT) route known as the Omaha Rapid Bus Transit (ORBT). The ORBT experience unites smart technology and streamlined travel for faster, more frequent public transportation and features onboard GPS, Wi-Fi, and mobile fare payment upgrades, to allow payment via Metro’s app.

Metro delivers 100% ADA accessible fixed route and express/commuter bus public transit within the city limits of Omaha, Neb., providing over 4.5 million passenger trips per year.

New Flyer, a leader in fully-accessible and high-capacity bus rapid transit solutions, has BRT buses operating in cities such as Cleveland, San Bernardino, Eugene, San Jose, and Seattle.
