The order applies to 328 Nova LFS articulated buses. The client, MTA New York City Transit, has a fleet of more than 6,000 buses. In 2010, MTA tested 90 of Nova's articulated buses, including on Line M15 in Manhattan. The buses functioned very well during the test and contributed to the new major order. The 328 new buses will be delivered from August 2011 to April 2013. The buses for New York City will be manufactured in Nova Bus's plant in Plattsburgh, in the northern part of the State of New York.
"Nova Bus is proud to continue its partnership with MTA New York City Transit," said Nova Bus president and CEO Gilles Dion. "Since 2009, our teams have worked in close collaboration to customize our product to address the unique operational needs of New York City."
