SAINT-EUSTACHE, QC, Dec. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Nova Bus is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2-year contract by Calgary Transit with the possibility of extending the agreement for a further three years. In the first year, 40 Nova LFS buses are scheduled for delivery.
With a fleet of almost 1,000 buses providing 95.3 million rides annually on 168 routes, Calgary Transit is a significant new partner for Nova Bus and will help consolidate the company's growing presence in Western Canada.
Making the very most of Nova Bus's know-how and experience, Calgary Transit has selected a 40-feet configuration of Nova LFS, which offers time-tested performance and reliability.
