Nova Bus unveiling Sudbury Transit new LFS buses
Sudbury Transit and Nova Bus cut the ribbon on Sudbury’s first Nova LFS Smart BusTM with a newly-designed interior at the Ontario Transportation Expo last week. Sudbury Transit is taking delivery of three new Nova LFS this month to update its fleet.
Sudbury’s new LFS Smart Buses include many improvements, from the driver partition to the rear of the vehicle. Inspired by aerospace and rail transportation, their design was optimized based on customer and focus group feedback.

“These new vehicles showcase the evolution of our products through the years,” explained Jean-Pierre Baracat, President of Nova Bus. “Sudbury is a longtime partner of Nova Bus and we’re committed to providing solutions that make sense in their daily operations.”
Sudbury received their first Nova LFS buses in 1998. Their new buses are easier to maintain compared to previous models. Changes include a seamless floor, cantilevered seat legs and wall extrusions that have fewer dust traps. The redesigned rear tunnel also improves access to main components.
The interior was designed to offer passengers a more comfortable ride. Ceiling headroom through the entire length of the vehicle is increased on the street side. Natural light is optimized during the day. At night, LED lighting makes the passenger environment brighter.
Sudbury’s new buses also mark a step towards greener efficiency. They integrate the Nova eCooling system which reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
