New York City Transit has announced it will add 15 New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE low-floor, sixty-foot electric heavy-duty transit buses to its transportation fleet. Each bus will include New Flyer’s CONNECT 360 business analytics and reporting tool, which is designed to optimize performance and operations.
The order supports NYCT’s efforts to develop a cleaner public transportation footprint, and follows previously-announced plans to fully electrify its entire fleet by 2040.
As part of the contract, New Flyer will also provide installation, testing and commissioning of 16 Siemens 150 kW interoperable chargers through its recently-formed Infrastructure Solutions service.
Chris Stoddart, President of New Flyer, said, “Across NFI Group, we’ve delivered more than 2,500 buses to NYCT, with over 1,100 MCI coaches and 1,400 New Flyer transit buses connecting New York City and its surrounding boroughs and communities.”
