NFI to Supply 24 Additional CNG Buses in Southern Nevada

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has exercised options to purchase an additional 24 Xcelsior compressed natural gas (CNG) 60-foot transit buses from NFI’s subsidiary, New Flyer of America.

This is part of a five-year contract that was announced in 2021 for New Flyer to supply up to 130 Xcelsior CNG sixty-foot buses to RTC, supported by Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds.

New Flyer’s Xcelsior CNG buses eliminate the need for particulate filters and regeneration cycles, ultimately lending more breathable air to the community
Chris Stoddart, President, North American Bus and Coach, NFI said:

“For over 30 years, RTC has partnered with New Flyer to deliver more than 820 buses, nearly half of which were CNG propulsion. Each low-emission, quiet Xcelsior CNG bus emits 90% less nitrogen oxide compared to traditional diesel engines. Together with RTC, we are creating a more liveable, connected, and healthy Las Vegas Valley community.”

The new vehicles will operate as part of RTC’s public transit services in the greater Las Vegas Valley. The operator provides more than 64 million passenger rides each year.
