This order supports TTC’s goal of converting its entire bus fleet to zero exhaust emissions by 2040. To further advance this plan, the agency also recently ordered 124 LFSe+ electric buses from Nova Bus.

In 2022, TTC also placed a firm order with NFI for 134 Xcelsior 40-foot hybrid-electric heavy-duty transit buses and 68 Xcelsior 60-foot hybrid-electric buses

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

Building on our partnership with TTC spanning over half a century, this new order supports the TTC’s efforts towards net zero goals for a healthier and more sustainable future. We are proud of the performance from the active in-service trial and are excited to add to the New Flyer fleet at TTC.
