New Flyer Industries, Inc. (TSX: NFI.UN) (“New Flyer” or the “Company”), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in Canada and the United States, announced today that Ms. Pat Jacobsen has been invited and has agreed to join its Board of Directors. Ms. Jacobsen also sits on the boards of Revera Inc., Port Metro Vancouver and the BC Cancer Foundation.

“We are very fortunate to have someone of Pat’s caliber joining our board,” said the Honourable Brian Tobin, New Flyer’s Chairman of the Board. “Pat’s first-hand knowledge and experience with municipal transit systems brings a fresh and new perspective to the board, and her tremendous industry knowledge, together with her unquestionable business acumen with expertise in strategy and human resources will be invaluable in helping guide New Flyer in the years ahead.”

“I look forward to working closely with Pat,” said Paul Soubry, President and CEO of New Flyer. “This expansion of our board ensures that New Flyer will continue to benefit from a diversity of experience, perspective and opinions.”

“New Flyer is a great company,” said Ms. Jacobsen. “I look forward to working with the board and the Company’s leadership team in developing strategies and helping chart New Flyer to continued leadership in the North American transit industry.”

Ms. Jacobsen served as the CEO of TransLink in Vancouver, BC, from 2001 to 2008 before retiring. During her tenure at TransLink, Ms. Jacobsen demonstrated planning and strategic leadership which led to ridership increases, new major capital projects and Canada’s first transit police force, which improved safety and security for operators and passengers. TransLink is the 11th largest transit system in Canada and the U.S. and provides over 300 million passenger trips per year.

Prior to TransLink, Ms. Jacobsen served as the President and CEO of the Manitoba Workers’ Compensation Board in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She has also held senior positions at Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, Manulife Insurance Company and the Government of Ontario, where her last position was Deputy Minister of Transportation. Ms. Jacobsen has been honoured with many awards, most notably for her efforts in sustainability and holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Manitoba. It is expected that Ms. Jacobsen will be formally appointed to the New Flyer board at the quarterly meeting to be held on November 12, 2009.
