New Flyer manufacturing facility & electric buses featured in the new MotorWeek episode
Published by MotorWeek
Many of the new passenger vehicles we drive these days are electrified in some form. More and more of the transit vehicles are following a greener path, with electric and hybrid power on the rise, along with natural gas and other clean fuels. One company in particular, is flying high as an innovator of tomorrow’s clean transit solutions.
New Flyer is America’s largest transit bus and motor coach manufacturer. From three U.S. plants, they crank out 60 buses a week, each one is custom-specced, available in three lengths and five power sources – diesel, natural gas, hydrogen fuel cell, hybrid, and full battery electric - all from the same line, and the feat becomes nothing short of amazing.
We visited New Flyer’s Anniston, Alabama assembly plant, where more than 35 buses are in production at any given time. Each bus is built from the ground up, literally.
