New Flyer delivers 4,000th CNG bus
New Flyer Industries Inc., a manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in Canada and the U.S., delivered its 4,000th CNG bus in December.
“This achievement comes for us at a pivotal point in the industry,” said Paul Soubry, New Flyer’s president and CEO. “Our customers are experiencing both economic and environmental pressures, and the interest in alternative fuels continues to grow. This milestone is not only an opportunity to celebrate our success, but is also reinforces our leadership in CNG bus manufacturing at a critical time when the industry needs it the most.”
New Flyer has been building CNG buses since 1994, longer than any other heavy-duty bus manufacturer in Canada or the U.S. Over the past two decades, New Flyer has developed tremendous expertise, and, as a result, its CNG system is incredibly robust with significant demonstrated success in revenue service. More than 60 transit systems operate New Flyer CNG buses today.
