New Flyer Industries, Inc. (“New Flyer” or the “Company”), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in the United States and Canada, announced today that METRO Regional Transit Authority of Summit County (“METRO RTA”), based in Akron, OH, has approved the purchase of a firm order for six (12 equivalent units or “EUs”) Xcelsior compressed natural gas (CNG) 60-foot heavy-duty buses.

New Flyer has built for Akron since 1998, with 60 prior deliveries in either 35’ or 40’ lengths. Building on that history, this procurement will be the first 60’ buses New Flyer has ever built for them. Additionally, the last build for Akron was in 2004 and was for New Flyer’s low-floor (LF) model, this newly-awarded contract is for New Flyer’s Xcelsior model. The Xcelsior’s exceptional styling, ‘best in class’ model, offers improved accessibility, lighter weight delivering improved fuel economy, noise reduction and passenger experience, all of which is supported by New Flyer’s warranty, service and lifetime customer care. The 6 (12 EUs) CNG buses will contribute to METRO RTA’s current active fleet of approximately 124 buses. These buses will alleviate some of the congestion found on routes that are currently being serviced by 40-foot buses, thus offering greater accessibility and an enhanced passenger’s experience.

“New Flyer brings two decades of expertise to the design and manufacture of CNG buses,” said Paul Soubry, New Flyer’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have delivered over 4,800 CNG buses to North America since 1994, and we’re proud to say that we have more experience than any other manufacturer in the industry.”

The buses are expected to begin production in March of 2013 with delivery anticipated for the second quarter of 2013.
