New Flyer said it has bid to supply 139 sixty-foot Xcelsior buses, but “that contract has not yet been awarded and there can be no assurance that it will be awarded to New Flyer.”

New Flyer says that NYCT and the area’s other MTA Bus operations “comprise the largest transit agency in North America with over 5,700 transit buses in their fleet and an annual ridership of nearly 670 million.

“New Flyer began building buses for MTA more than two decades ago and to date has built over 1,900 buses, of which 1,353 are actively in service for MTA today.”
