Nova Bus has won the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration’s (MDOT MTA) bid to supply city buses to the Baltimore region’s public transport system. The five-year contract provides for the delivery of 70 buses per year for a total of 350 diesel buses to be produced—310 forty-foot Nova LFS and 40 sixty-foot LFS Artic articulated buses.


These new vehicles will be built at the Nova Bus factory in Plattsburgh, NY. Delivery is scheduled to start in the fall of 2019 and will continue through the end of 2024.

Nova Bus is the only city bus manufacturer with a factory in the state of New York. The company’s portfolio includes electric, hybrid electric, diesel and CNG buses, high-capacity vehicles and integrated intelligent transportation systems.

Nova Bus is moving forward with the electrification of its vehicle key components to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Nova Bus is part of the Volvo Group.



Not a very g r e e n purchase. The Hybrid or EV version or a mix could do better for the environment.


At least make them CNG/DME.
