LA Metro Opts for Additional 350 New Flyer CNG Buses
New Flyer announced that the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (LA Metro) has exercised options for 350 heavy-duty 40-foot CNG buses.
These exercised options, valued at approximately $180 million, represent the remaining options from New Flyer’s contract with LA Metro executed in 2013. All 550 buses from the original firm order have been successfully delivered, and management expects that these additional 350 buses will be delivered to LA Metro by the end of the fourth quarter of 2016.
LA Metro’s transit fleet includes a total of 2,160 heavy-duty buses currently in operation, nearly 95 percent of which have been built by New Flyer or its subsidiary NABI.
