By using ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel, advanced engines and emissions control technology, the new buses will deliver greater efficiency and less pollution.

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

Over the past 25 years, NFI has delivered more than 4,400 buses and coaches to NYCT, supporting New York City with safe and reliable mobility. With new technology onboard, our Xcelsior buses feature the latest EPA-compliant engine technology – delivering up to 95% reduction of NOx emissions.

These new buses with industry-leading passenger carrying capacity will provide the New York communities with cleaner, quieter, and more efficient transportation.

The new vehicles conform to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Heavy-Duty National Program, which mandates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption for heavy-duty highway vehicles.
