Winnipeg’s New Flyer Industries has been awarded a contract to build 90 heavy-duty 60-foot Xcelsior clean diesel buses for the New York City Transit Authority and the MTA Bus Company.

Production will begin immediately and be carried out of New Flyer’s St. Cloud, Minnesota facility.

In the last two years, New Flyer has delivered 385 low-floor 40-foot CNG buses and recently built 90 40-foot Xcelsior clean diesel buses — both fleets currently operating in New York. In July 2012, NYCT assigned a contract they held with Daimler Buses North America, Inc. to New Flyer to build an additional 74 40-foot CNG buses.
