NFI Named State Supplier for Electric Buses in Florida

NFI has been selected as an approved supplier of electric transit buses and charging infrastructure for the Purchase Schedule for the State of Florida.

The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) facilitated the schedule to enable any transit authority, city, county, or State government agency within Florida to easily purchase zero-emission, battery-electric transit buses, coaches, and associated charging infrastructure.

“Being named a state supplier of EVs and infrastructure – including buses and coaches – demonstrates NFI's undeniable leadership in mass mobility electrification. For over 25 years, NFI has supported reliable public transit in Florida and today we took another step in the evolution to zero-emission mobility. This schedule will help agencies transition to greener fleets, and ultimately contribute to cleaner air and more livable communities.”

The contract enables NFI to supply its electric mobility solutions, including the Xcelsior CHARGE NG bus in all lengths, the D45 CRT LE CHARGE coach, and associated charging infrastructure, such as depot and on-route chargers.

The purchase schedule initially covers 2 years, with the potential to extend for three additional years.

“Our agency was honoured to lead the statewide procurement of zero-emission buses on behalf of the more than 30 transit systems across the Sunshine State. We were impressed with NFI’s proposals and pleased to recommend including their EVs in the state schedule, so any transit system in Florida could buy these electric buses and coaches more efficiently.”
