NOVA BUS RECEIVES LARGEST NORTH AMERICAN BUS ORDER
Nova Bus was awarded the collective contract for Quebec's transit authorities, coordinated by Association du transport urbain du Québec (ATUQ). The five-year contract, covering the period from 2020 to 2024, calls for the delivery of 497 40-foot hybrid buses LFS HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and up to 1,028 vehicles on option to the transit authorities serving Quebec's nine largest cities.
The order represents the largest order in Nova Bus history to date.
Nova Bus will further strengthen its ties to ATUQ and Quebec's transit authorities. The transit authorities will thus continue to rely on the training and support that help them reduce maintenance costs and provide a great rider experience to the populations they serve.
The contract helps consolidate jobs at the Saint-Eustache and Saint-François-du-Lac plants, which handle the final assembly and manufacturing of the vehicle chassis and other components, respectively. These activities help meet Canadian content requirements as called for by the Quebec government.
