Nova Bus, a leading transit bus manufacturer in North America, is very proud to have been awarded the collective contract for Quebec’s transit authorities, coordinated by Association du transport urbain du Québec (ATUQ). The 5-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. This order represents the largest order in Nova Bus history to date.
“We are very happy to have been selected following a stringent procurement process. Quebec is our natural market and the basis of our reach across North America. For over 20 years, we have created an ecosystem around our business, including a significant network of Quebec and North American suppliers, which enables us to proudly offer transit users high-quality, reliable, and durable buses, built and assembled entirely in Quebec. This is Quebec expertise serving the people of Quebec,” said Martin Larose, Vice President and General Manager of Nova Bus.
Nova Bus is pleased to 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 Nova Bus facility in Plattsburgh, NY is located in TDC’s Banker Road Industrial Park.
