Nova Bus shows innovation and technologies at APTA EXPO

Nova Bus revealed today several new transit bus technologies and innovative solutions at APTA EXPO, held in New Orleans from October 3 to 5. The highlight of its impressive 8,000 sq. ft. booth is its new fully-electric transit bus prototype.

Electro Mobility is a core focus for Nova Bus, which is making great strides in significantly reducing energy consumption and emissions. Along with continuously improving the efficiency of current systems, the Company is exploring leading-edge technologies with North American partners and leveraging synergies from throughout the Volvo Group to provide fuel savings. The Nova Bus team is proud to unveil its promising fully-electric prototype bus and Electro Mobility solutions at the APTA EXPO.

“Operational environments can vary greatly, both physically and over time,” said Mr. Jacques Bergeron, Vice President of Engineering, Product Development and Procurement for Nova Bus. “This is why our solutions will be based on a modular and versatile system that allows transit authorities to select the Electro Mobility solution that best suits their operational needs.”

Visitors will also be among the first to discover Nova Bus’ new transit bus interior. Behind its bright, modern look, the new interior integrates innovative solutions designed to significantly enhance the passenger environment and streamline bus maintenance. This advanced design is the result of extensive research that combines the best of manufacturer and operator field expertise.

The third bus on display is the Nova LFX, Nova Bus’ Bus Rapid Transit vehicle, designed to meet high demands for capacity, reliability, speed and comfort. The LFX features a sleek, full roofline, stylish design and numerous amenities for passengers and operators alike, including ITS4mobility, Volvo’s intelligent transport solution.

A team of specialists will be on hand to meet with visitors each day and daily activities will be organized in Nova Bus’ booth #1933 (Hall F).
