Pace to add 75 clean-diesel New Flyer buses

Posted on August 13, 2019

New Flyer of America Inc. announced a new contract for 75 clean-diesel, 40-foot Xcelsior® heavy-duty transit buses for Chicago’s Pace Suburban Bus.

The new fleet will replace older buses currently in operation, while growing Pace’s service footprint to support its Vision 2020 strategic plan, which outlines a more efficient long-range network that is convenient and easy for passengers to understand.

Pace is the suburban bus division and regional paratransit provider of the Regional Transportation Authority in the Chicago metropolitan area, covering six counties over 3,400 square miles and providing over 35 million passenger trips per year. Pace's family of public transportation services includes vanpool, ride-share matching, community-based transportation programs, and also recently expanded with Pulse, Pace’s new rapid transit network. Pace, an industry leader, was named a 2019 Clean Fuels Champion by Chicago Area Clean Cities, a nonprofit coalition dedicated to promoting clean-vehicles and clean-air solutions for transportation.

Pace also operates nearly 40 over-the-road coaches from Motor Coach Industries, another NFI subsidiary.
