Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a Canadian bus manufacturer of heavy-duty mid-sized transit buses for sale in Canada and the United States, is to supply Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses to a public transport agency in Hamilton, Ontario. Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) has ordered five CNG Vicinity buses.
This is a first time order for HSR and the buses will be delivered in the first quarter of 2018.
William Trainer, CEO of Grande West stated, “We are very pleased to receive follow on orders from existing customers and forge new relationships with transit agencies throughout Canada. It’s very exciting to be working with HSR with our new CNG Vicinity. HSR has a tremendous history in CNG propulsion as they pioneered the world’s first fleet of CNG buses in 1985. HSR is very familiar with the technology and we are looking forward to supporting their operations team as the buses are rolled out into revenue service.”
Grande West Transportation Group designs, engineers and manufactures mid-size buses for transit authorities and commercial enterprises. Grande West’s Best-in-Class Vicinity CNG bus is available in 27.5, 30 and 35 foot models
