Nova Bus has been awarded a contract by the city and county of Honolulu for up to 35 Nova Bus Artic vehicles, the 60-foot clean air diesel bus model. The buses will be delivered over a three-year period.
With this order, Nova Bus will be adding up to 35 articulated buses to the 24 Nova Bus 40-foot buses already part of the fleet.
The city’s transit system includes more than 107 bus lines, serving more than 600,000 passengers on a weekly basis.
The new articulated buses will support the modernizing of the city’s fleet by delivering a fuel-efficient and EPA-approved clean air diesel propulsion system, as well as the capacity to support growing demand for public transit in the region.
“We are looking forward to delivering our first 60-foot articulated buses to Honolulu,” said Martin Larose, president, Nova Bus.
“We’re excited to partner once again with the city and county of Honolulu to provide reliable, energy-efficient and safe buses to public transit users in the region.”
