Nova Bus Receives Order for 425 CNG Buses from San Antonio Transit Agency
Nova Bus received an order for 425 40 ft. CNG buses from VIA Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio, Texas. The buses will be manufactured in Plattsburgh, New York, and delivery will begin at the end of November 2016. The new buses will support VIA’s ongoing all-CNG fleet conversion.
“This is another milestone in our history of partnership for excellence in public transportation in Texas using vehicles that will help these progressive cities meet their sustainability objectives,” said President of Nova Bus Raymond Leduc said.
The Nova Bus CNG buses are the company’s greenest ever, and they say the vehicles define a new generation of natural gas-powered buses with substantial fuel savings. In 2016, VIA became the only public transit agency in the Southwestern US to earn certification from the International Standards Organization (ISO) for its proactive efforts to provide sustainable service through its Environmental and Sustainability Management System (ESMS).
