June 21, 2019

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (Lynx) has awarded a contract to New Flyer of America Incorporated (New Flyer) for the supply of up to 75 18.3-metre (60-foot) compressed natural gas (CNG) Xcelsior heavy-duty buses. The contract includes a firm order for 25 buses (or 50 equivalent units), with an option to purchase an additional 50 buses (or 100 equivalent units).


The buses will be low-emission articulated buses. They will feature greater passenger capacity and have improved operational efficiencies. They will provide passenger service in the Greater Orlando area.


New Flyer has also secured a contract from San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) in California for the supply of 55 18.3-metre (60-foot) clean diesel Xcelsior heavy-duty buses. SamTrans’ order will be funded by Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grants. The new buses will replace units from 2002 and will help enhance passenger service along El Camino Real.
