New Flyer Holds Events In Support of the American Public Transportation Association [APTA] Stand Up For Transportation Day

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – April 9th, 2015: (TSX: NFI) (TSX: NFI.DB.U) New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc. (“New Flyer” or the “Company”), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in the United States and Canada, held events at U.S facilities across the country in support of Stand Up for Transportation Day.

Stand Up for Transportation Day united more than 240 participating organizations in communities across the U.S to support the passage of a long-term, sustainable and reliable federal transportation funding bill.
New Flyer facilities in Anniston Alabama, Ontario California, Elkhart Indiana, St Cloud Minnesota and Delaware, Ohio all held events in support of the renewal of funding for the federal transportation bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), which is set to expire on May 31, 2015.

The American Public Transportation Association noted the nation faces a $160 billion backlog just to bring public transit and road systems into a state of good repair. APTA believes the lack of a long-term federal funding bill creates local funding uncertainty which jeopardizes transportation project planning and discourages private sector investment.
