MARTA SHOWCASES ELECTRIC NEW FLYER BUS

Avatar

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) recently hosted a viewing of the New Flyer Battery-Electric 60 foot Xcelsior CHARGE bus at Lindbergh Station.

The 35, 40, and 60 foot battery and electric powered buses can charge quickly at a rail station where you have a strong electrical current or plug-in at a bus operating facility which provides a lower current. Some models feature doors on both sides, making them ideal for use on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes. The vehicles run cleanly and quietly, producing no emissions or noise.

“Low to no emission vehicles are the future of public transportation,” said MARTA General Manager & CEO Jeffrey Parker. “MARTA is proud to partner with New Flyer in finding ways we can provide reliable service while remaining good stewards of the environment.”

A significant portion of MARTA’s bus fleet is made by New Flyer and the Authority is exploring a pilot program with the Xcelsior CHARGE model.
