B.C. Transit adding 68 New Flyer CNG Xcelsiors

Posted on August 15, 2019

The BC Transit Corporation (BC Transit) issued an order for 68 CNG New Flyer Xcelsior® 40-foot, heavy-duty transit buses. The order follows BC Transit’s 2018 purchase of CNG buses, which were converted from the New Flyer option backlog.

The announcement follows the July launch of BC Transit’s low carbon program, which committed to full fleet electrification by 2040. Within this plan, BC Transit will transition all 1,200 of its buses from traditional propulsion to zero-emission vehicles. Earlier in July, the Canadian and British Columbia provincial government pledged $79 million to BC Transit for a new electric bus fleet.

BC Transit has ordered 700 buses from NFI since 1992, including New Flyer transit buses, Alexander Dennis Limited double-deck buses, and ARBOC® low-floor cutaway buses.
