New Flyer to provide seven electric buses to MRTA

New Flyer of America is to supply seven electric Xcelsior Charge NG 35ft buses to Mountain Rides Transportation Authority. In addition to the buses, the contract includes an ABB 150kWh depot charger from NFI Infrastructure Solutions and follows an order of four Xcelsior Charge buses delivered to MRTA in 2021.

Backed by Federal Transit Administration funding, the order follows MRTA’s fleet electrification commitment to achieve a fully electric fleet by 2030. 

“NFI is proud to accelerate MRTA’s transition to zero-emission with four-pillar mobility solutions, including our high-performance electric buses and full-suite infrastructure support,” says Chris Stoddart, president, North American Bus and Coach, NFI. “By leveraging New Flyer’s advanced bus technology and extensive experience in charging infrastructure, MRTA will deliver cleaner, quieter mobility while mitigating the negative effects of climate change.”
