Nova Bus confirms a new order from Guelph Transit for four clean-diesel 40-foot Nova LFS buses, with options for up to five additional vehicles per year, from 2016 to 2019. The first vehicle delivery will take place by December 2015.
After their latest positive experience and recent delivery of four Nova LFS in January 2015, Guelph Transit has decided to once again turn to Nova Bus and increase its fleet with an additional four buses this year. The agreement includes options for up to five additional vehicles per year to grow their fleet for the next four years.
“We are proud to continue to partner with Guelph Transit and we look forward to assisting them with their service growth,” said Jean-Pierre Baracat, President of Nova Bus. “Guelph is a longtime partner of Nova Bus’ and we’re committed to providing solutions that make sense for their daily operations.”
The new Nova LFS will feature a revised interior layout including flip-up seats to optimize capacity. In addition, Guelph Transit and their users will also benefit from advanced features such as an ITS system, surveillance cameras, as well as interior LED lighting which promotes a brighter passenger environment. The vehicle also comes equipped with Nova Bus’ proprietary electric engine cooling system, resulting in significant fuel savings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and competitive life cycle costs when compared to conventional diesel-powered buses.
Guelph Transit General Manager Phil Meagher stated “We are pleased to renew our agreement with Nova Bus and we look forward to receiving the new vehicles in order to update our fleet. The Nova LFS has proven to be a reliable vehicle and serves the needs of our customers with the revised interior layout.”
