Winnipeg-based New Flyer Industries Inc. has been awarded the contract to build 74 CNG (compressed natural gas) buses for the New York City Transit Authority.
Production on the heavy-duty 40-foot buses will begin in August and are expected to be delivered to the NYCT by the end of the year. The contract includes an additional 30 option buses that will not be ordered at this time.
The present order will be virtually identical to New Flyer’s existing contract with NYCT for 385 buses currently in production. Final assembly of the fleet will take place in New Flyer’s Crookston, Minnesota facility.
