The 22, 40-foot and 60-foot buses are anticipated to begin production in the third quarter of 2013 with an expected delivery in the first quarter of 2014. This order will increase the number of CNG buses in Sun Metro’s fleet of 232 transit buses that are nearly all CNG technology. New Flyer has previously built and delivered 60 buses for El Paso’s fleet, in both liquid and compressed natural gas propulsions.
With nearly 20 years of experience developing NGV systems, New Flyer has gained important experience that benefits customers with the most advanced bus in the industry. Additional benefits include a 20-year certified CNG tank and a fire-suppression system that comes as a standard feature on all New Flyer natural gas buses.
