New Flyer to supply battery-electric buses in Toronto, Canada [free access]

February 19, 2019

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has placed an order for ten 12.2-metre (40-foot) zero-emission, battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE buses from New Flyer Industries Canada (New Flyer). The order also includes the supply of five ABB direct current (DC) depot chargers.


The order is an addendum to the original contract signed by New Flyer in June 2018 for the supply of 10 battery-electric buses and increases the TTC’s total order to 20 units. The contract has options for the supply of an additional 20 buses in the future.


The order is part of the TTC’s commitment to transition its bus fleet to a 100 per cent zero-emission fleet by 2040.
