322 Nova LFS articulated buses for Quebec
Saint Eustache, Quebec, January 10, 2007—Volvo Buses’ Canadian subsidiary, Nova Bus of Quebec, has been selected as supplier of 322 articulated buses by the Province of Quebec’s transit authorities with deliveries in 2009-2012.
Following a request for proposal, Nova Bus’ selection is evidence of the customer’s confidence, and the efforts it has made to improve the reliability of its products and lower their life-cycle cost. It is also a testimony to the manner in which the company takes care of its key customers, a factor that has resulted in a long-term partnership between ATUQ and Nova Bus.
STM, the transit authority in Montreal, acting on behalf of ATUQ, a purchasing group consisting of nine of the province’s transit authorities, has retained Nova Bus to manufacture 322 LFS 60-foot articulated buses for delivery between 2009 and 2012, with a 2-year option allowing the purchase of an additional 100 buses for the years 2013 and 2014.
The addition of Nova articulated buses in the ATUQ fleet will allow for improved response to customer needs and promote increased traffic on selected routes.
“We are happy with this decision and we are particularly proud that we are able to further develop our relationship with this customer, providing them with vehicles built on the same reliable LFS platform”, notes Nova Bus President and CEO, Mr. Gilles Dion.
