New Flyer of America receives an order for 20 zero-emission electric transit buses from the Alameda Contra Costa Transit District.

The order follows AC Transit’s purchase of ten hydrogen fuel cell-electric and five battery-electric buses from NFI in 2019 and is supported by funding from the U.S. Federal Transit Administration.

Based in Oakland, California, AC Transit is one of the largest bus-only systems in America, serving Alameda and Contra Costa counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Paul Soubry, NFI president and CEO, commented on the partnership.

“Since 1980,” he remarked, “NFI has delivered over 740 buses to AC Transit, and we are pleased to continue expanding zero-emission mobility in the greater San Francisco Bay Area through this follow-on order.”

He added, “AC Transit is an innovative leader focused on delivering the best in urban mobility for its riders, and we look forward to supporting AC Transit on its continued journey to a fully zero-emission fleet.”

AC Transit has ordered 20 of New Flyer’s zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell-electric, 40-foot Xcelsior CHARGE H2 heavy-duty transit buses. The purchase is part of AC Transit’s commitment to operating a 25 per cent zero-emission fleet by 2023.

The California Air Resources Board has required all California agencies to fully transition to zero-emission bus fleets by 2040.

“With more Xcelsior CHARGE H2 fuel cell buses in its fleet, AC Transit can count on proven range performance, cleaner transportation, reduced noise pollution, and elimination of greenhouse gases – with buses that produce only clean water vapor from the tailpipe,” said Chris Stoddart, president of New Flyer.

NFI Group is a leader in zero-emission mobility, with electric vehicles operating in more than 80 cities in four countries.

NFI Group is down 1.24 per cent, trading at $26.24 per share as of 2:05 pm ET.
