NJ TRANSIT orders 8 electric Xcelsior CHARGE NG buses with options to purchase up to 75 more

New Flyer of America has received a firm order from the New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJ TRANSIT) for eight zero-emission, next generation Xcelsior CHARGE NG forty-foot heavy-duty transit buses with options to purchase up to 75 more battery-electric buses under a five-year contract.

The new contract advances NJ TRANSIT’s zero-emission (ZEB) bus program to reach the goal of transitioning to a 100% ZEB fleet by 2040, aligned with Governor Murphy’s Energy Master Plan. NJ TRANSIT is America’s third-largest public transit agency, connecting New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia, providing nearly 270 million annual passenger trips pre-pandemic, with an active fleet of over 2,200 buses.

New Flyer’s Xcelsior CHARGE NG battery-electric bus delivers up to 525 kWh of power and features a new lightweight electric traction drive system providing up to 90% energy recovery.
