Dear NovaFlash readers,
In the past few years, many cities across North America have chosen to invest in public transportation to help reduce traffic congestion, optimize city center access and improve citizens’ overall quality of life.
Increasing the capacity and productivity of public transit in a growing city has proven to strengthen communities’ competitive advantage and contributes to building a strong economy. Fast service lanes and Bus Rapid Transit systems are emerging all over the continent and Nova Bus is proud to see its LFS Artic and LFX vehicles play a part.
We highlighted several high frequency transit system success stories in past issues of NovaFlash: Capital Metro in Austin, TX, with MetroRapid, San Joaquin RTD in Stockton, CA, with Metro Express and, Hartford, CT, which is looking forward to launching CTfastrak in 2015. And there are many more great stories to come!
In Canada, our articulated platform has millions of kilometers logged and a proven track record you can count on. Our team is now headed to the CUTA Annual Conference in Gatineau, QC, home to Société de transport de l’Outaouais and its Rapibus system. In this issue, we take a look at how STO responded to the need for greater transit capacity.
Our team takes great pride in supporting our partners in their innovations. And building transit buses tailored to your city’s transit needs is what we stand for.
