Washington Metro Orders 95 NFI Xcelsior Buses

NFI has announced that Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) has ordered 95 Xcelsior forty-foot heavy-duty transit buses.

Supported by funding from the Federal Transit Administration, the new buses will replace the operator’s end-of-life vehicles and will deliver on Metro’s Strategic Plan to improve the network’s safety and reliability.

Xcelsior buses conform to the Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Heavy-Duty National Program, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption
Chris Stoddart, President, North American Bus and Coach, NFI said:

“Since 1995, NFI has delivered over 2,040 buses to Metro and the agency continues to rely on NFI's proven transit technology to keep Washington moving. New Flyer’s Xcelsior bus features effective emission controls that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the cost of bus operation. Together, we are providing the community with safe, efficient, and reliable transportation.”

Metro is the second-busiest transit system in the United States, serving the Washington DC metropolitan area and providing approximately 79 million annual trips on 136 bus lines.
