TransLink orders 2 New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE electric buses

New Flyer Industries Canada ULC, a Canadian subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., the largest transit bus and motor coach manufacturer and parts distributor in North America, announced a new contract with the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (TransLink) for two forty-foot, battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE heavy-duty transit buses.

The buses are part of the Pan-Canadian Electric-Bus Demonstration and Integration Trial, facilitated by the Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC).

TransLink will deploy the electric buses and overhead electric charging stations compatible with the OppCharge protocol. The high-powered charging stations are being provided by ABB and Siemens Canada, and are compatible with all heavy-duty buses tested during the demonstration.

CUTRIC was fundamental in bringing together funding partners, various manufacturers, utility providers, and Canadian research teams to purchase, test, and demonstrate the interoperability of electric buses and interoperable charging solutions across the three agencies.
