Nova Bus has introduced the Nova LFS Shuttle
The efficient way to move people from Point A to B
Saint-Eustache, Quebec, June 6, 2005 – Nova Bus introduced its new Nova LFS Shuttle at the International Parking Institute Expo that was held in Fort Lauderdale, FL, from May 22 to 25. Designed and assembled for shuttle transportation service purposes, with excellent manoeuvrability in heavy traffic situations, this low-floor shuttle is the latest model to be added to Nova Bus’ durable, safe and reliable line of vehicles.
“This initiative is part of our ongoing strategy to bring innovative solutions to both private and public operators in North America. The Nova LFS has proven its reliability and durability with nearly 3000 units sold over the last nine years. We feel this new shuttle vehicle will meet our clients’ growing needs and we are convinced it will represent added-value to any fleet operator. It is a great addition to the Nova LFS family,” stated Gilles Dion, President and CEO at Nova Bus.
The new Nova LFS Shuttle was designed to meet durability needs and is well suited for carrying passengers efficiently and quickly from Point A to B. Its low-floor and extra-wide doors allow passengers to circulate freely in and out. Its adaptable seating and luggage space layout can be configured in a variety of ways. For physically challenged passengers, the Nova LFS also features an easy-access ramp for simple boarding and egress.
Built to last, the Nova LFS Shuttle has a durable and unique stainless steel structure eliminating mid-life rebuilding requirements which represents important savings both in time and money over the vehicle’s life. This industry workhorse also uses high-impact resistant thermoplastic materials which only require a few minutes to replace and a 100% corrosion free gel-coat finished fibreglass skin, lowering considerably its maintenance costs. The LFS Shuttle is sustained by Nova Bus’ strong commitment to offer unmatched after-sales service and on-time delivery at all times.
Nova Bus is a division of Prevost Car and is owned by Volvo Bus Corporation, which provides access to the financial strength, product development capabilities and quality manufacturing technology of the world’s second largest motor coach and transit bus manufacturing group.
Nova Bus is one of the largest designers and manufacturers of city, suburban and shuttle buses in North America and manufactures the Nova LFS model, a 40-foot low-floor bus with a complete stainless steel structure. Nova Bus is the first North American heavy-duty bus manufacturer in the urban transportation sector to achieve corporate-wide ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
