The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (Trinity Metro) awarded New Flyer a contract for four heavy-duty, 35-foot Xcelsior CHARGE™ battery-electric buses.

The zero-emission buses support a new route called The Dash, a zero-emission service connecting Downtown Fort Worth with its Cultural District and utilizing Trinity Metro’s first all-electric buses; ultimately delivering reduced emissions and continued economic growth in the area. New Flyer is further supporting the deployment with management of ABB charger installation and commissioning through New Flyer Infrastructure Solutions™.

Trinity Metro’s first Xcelsior CHARGE™ was unveiled in Fort Worth during a May 2019 event, which previewed The Dash service. The bus showcased reduced air and noise pollution, and enhancements such as wood-like floors and USB charge ports for passengers. The purchase was supported by local, state, and federal funds.

The Dash is in the testing phase and will begin operations on September 22.
