New Flyer Industries Canada ULC (New Flyer), the Canadian subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., says it has been awarded by South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (TransLink) an order for 47 compressed natural gas (CNG) forty-foot, heavy-duty transit buses.
The bus order will support Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC), TransLink’s largest operating company, providing over 96% of the region’s bus service. The new vehicles will help CMBC meet increased demand, with a 5.8% increase in passenger journeys in 2017.
“New Flyer is pleased to support TransLink by providing a low-emission bus that meets TransLink’s economic, environmental, and social requirements,” said Jennifer McNeill, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, New Flyer. “TransLink enables citizens in the Metro Vancouver region to make sustainable transportation choices, and we are thrilled to support the expansion of sustainable transit with Canadian innovation on the road in BC.”
