Canada: Regina Orders Up to 53 Nova Bus Electric Buses

Volvo Group’s Nova Bus has been awarded a 5-year contract to supply up to 53 LFSe+ electric buses in the City of Regina, Saskatchewan.

The first seven 40-foot long-range buses are scheduled to be delivered in 2025, while an additional 46 remain in option.

This order follows the city’s selection of battery electric as its preferred technology for Regina’s transit fleet. Regina Transit is thus committed to purchasing only battery electric models from 2024 in order to gradually replace its fleet by 2040.

Brad Bells, Director of Transit & Fleet with the City of Regina said:

“These will be the first battery-electric buses in Regina Transit’s fleet. The addition of these electric buses will support the City of Regina’s goal of becoming a 100% renewable city by 2050 and is in line with our Energy and Sustainability Framework.”

In purchasing the Nova Bus LFSe+, Regina Transit hopes to reduce maintenance costs and improve air quality by eliminating tailpipe pollutants and greenhouse gases.

Ralph Acs, President of Nova Bus said:

“We are proud to have accompanied Regina Transit in its transition to electromobility, first with our hybrid bus model and now with the all-electric LFSe+. We strongly believe transit agencies and cities such as Regina are paving the way for the success of this important transition to clean transportation, which will support our collective efforts to reduce GHG emissions. We are very happy to be part of the solution at Nova Bus and to support all our clients in this transition.”
