The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has ordered 124 LFSe+ electric buses from Nova Bus, alongside a potential additional order of 12 buses and up to 405 units in option.

Over the past ten years, Nova Bus has delivered over 1,300 buses to the TTC, including hybrid-electric buses.

This is now the agency’s first order for Nova Bus’s LFSe+ 40-foot electric buses.

The buses from the base order will be delivered over a two-year period starting in 2024.

Ralph Acs, President of Nova Bus said:

We are delighted to build on our strong relationship with the TTC for this award of LFSe+ electric buses. The TTC has a long history of leading in battery-electric transit solutions and this announcement is in line with the agency’s long-term sustainability goals. We couldn’t be happier to be part of that journey to support the TTC with its zero-emissions commitment and the City of Toronto’s goal of reducing 80% of its vehicle emissions by 2050.

This order is funded by a joint investment of 700 million CAD from the Government of Canada’s Zero Emission Transit Fund and the City of Toronto to accelerate the electrification of TTC’s bus fleet.

The funding will cover the purchase of battery-electric buses and chargers, as well as related infrastructure upgrades.

In addition to supplying buses to TTC, the order also includes an adoption process for other agencies in Ontario to enter into agreements for Nova Bus to supply up to 550 buses over four years.
