This purchase will advance PTD’s Transportation 2050 plan by enabling it to offer a greater number of bus services and enhance transit connectivity across Phoenix.

The purchase of low- and no-direct-emission vehicles will also contribute towards its Transportation Electrification Action Plan, which aims to improve air quality throughout the city.

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

“Today, PTD joins many other cities and transit agencies across North America in choosing advanced mobility solutions from NFI to enable its transition to a zero-emission fleet. Having delivered nearly 1,000 vehicles to PTD since 1994, we are honoured to support its goal of transitioning to a 100% electric fleet by 2040.

“With best-in-class features on board and one common platform to streamline training and maintenance, our high-performance fuel cell-electric and hybrid-electric buses will support a smooth transition to sustainable mobility through high operational performance, maintenance savings, and improved air quality.”
