The City and County of Honolulu (operating as ‘TheBus’) has awarded New Flyer an order for eight clean-diesel, 60′ articulated buses. The buses will replace existing TheBus vehicles that have reached end of their life, and help provide cleaner mobility and high capacity transit in the greater Honolulu area.

“New Flyer is proud to continue providing transportation in the Islands, with our industry-leading Xcelsior bus offering high capacity mobility solutions,” said Chris Stoddart, President, New Flyer. “As the City and County of Honalulu’s TheBus begins its evolution toward sustainable mobility, we will reduce particulate emission through advanced filtration technology, and help improve air quality while decreasing the carbon footprint of public transit in the community.”

Oahu Transit Services, Inc. operates fixed route and paratransit services for the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii, providing more than 69 million passenger journeys annually with a fleet of 540 buses. The American Public Transportation Association has twice honoured TheBus as America’s Best Transit System, in 1994-1995 and 2000-2001.
