New Flyer to Supply Up to 1,300 Buses to NJ TRANSIT

NFI subsidiary, New Flyer of America has been awarded a contract to supply up to 1,300 Xcelsior 40-foot clean-diesel transit buses to the New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJ TRANSIT).

This contract follows NJ TRANSIT’s November 2023 board authorisation, allowing the agency to initiate contracts for 550 40-foot transit buses with the option to procure an additional 750 units.

New Flyer has initially received a firm order for 175 buses with the option for NJ TRANSIT to purchase up to 1,125 additional buses at a later date.

The Xcelsior buses adhere to the Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s comprehensive Heavy-Duty National Program.

New Flyer’s technology integrates ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, advanced engines, and efficient emissions controls, resulting in highly efficient buses with diminished environmental impact.

Chris Stoddart, President, North American Bus and Coach, NFI said:

“The Xcelsior buses included in this contract are not only lighter, quieter, and more efficient than previous models, they also offer enhanced safety and accessibility features that make for a better overall rider experience. These new buses will play a key role in delivering the essential transportation services NJ TRANSIT provides to their riders every day.”

This award builds on NFI’s existing relationship with NJ TRANSIT, which already operates both MCI coaches and New Flyer heavy-duty transit buses.
