Saint-Eustache, Quebec, January 14, 2010 – Nova Bus is pleased to announce that Connecticut Transit (CT Transit) has selected Nova Bus to provide 35 LFS Artic buses, with options on an additional 35 articulated vehicles over a four-year period. 

CT Transit, whose divisions serve 7 metropolitan areas throughout the state of Connecticut, including Hartford, New Haven and Stamford, selected a mix of clean-diesel and hybrid drives for its articulated vehicles, with deliveries starting in late 2010.

Valued at approximately $60 million, the order will be assembled at Nova Bus’ Plattsburgh, NY plant. The company was selected particularly for its product design and performance, price and delivery schedule.
