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 and motor coaches in the United States and Canada, announced today that Connecticut Department of Transportation (“CTDOT”) awarded New Flyer a contract for up to 485 heavy-duty 35 and 40-foot Xcelsior® clean diesel and diesel electric hybrid buses.
