30 new Nova Bus vehicles for BC Transit
Saint-Eustache, Quebec, May 8, 2008 — Nova Bus is pleased to announce that BC Transit has purchased 30 new Nova LFS vehicles, 22 transit and 8 suburban, for delivery slated in September 2008.
“We are very pleased and committed to partner with BC Transit for a third year. We are convinced the suburban application will bring added value to their fleet. At Nova Bus, we strive to offer our partner clients new transportation solutions for all their transit needs.” says Gilles Dion, Nova Bus President and CEO.
“These new vehicles will help BC Transit attract more people to public transit,” said Manuel Achadinha, BC Transit President and CEO. “By providing convenient, comfortable and environmentally-friendly vehicles, we are showing that BC Transit is a positive solution to the single occupant vehicle.”
The low floor and single wide door of the commuter application ensure easy passenger access. Based on the Nova LFS for transit use, the suburban application is designed to provide one of the smoothest and most comfortable rides in urban transportation, by offering high-capacity comfortable seating for 45 passengers and convenient luggage racks. With its large panoramic passenger windows and modern look, the bus is also distinctively stylish.
