Winnipeg-based bus manufacturer New Flyer Industries has secured a $44 million U.S. for 83 buses in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The contract is with ABQ RIDE, which has 230 buses in its fleet, 135 of which have been built by New Flyer since 2004.

The contract for the heavy-duty 40-foot Xcelsior compressed natural gas buses is for 20 buses to start, with the option for an additional 63 over five years.

It will be ABQ’s second order of the Xcelsior model with the CNG propulsion system and will increase service capacity over the 40 routes they serve for 13 million passengers annually.
