New Flyer of America Inc. has been awarded a contract from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) in Southern California for 10 Xcelsior hydrogen fuel cell electric, 40-foot, heavy-duty transit buses.
According to New Flyer, the new order helps to expand the zero-emissions footprint of public transportation across California and adds sustainability to OCTA’s current fleet of just over 500 buses, which will serve communities throughout Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, Santa Ana and Westminster.
OCTA and New Flyer are partners in the Fuel Cell Electric Bus Commercialization Consortium (FCEBCC) project. This project is sponsored by a grant from the California Air Resources Board and is supported by the California Climate Investments (CCI) program.
