OCTA deploys New Flyer’s 10 fuel cell-electric buses in Orange County

News

New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., one of the world’s leading independent global bus manufacturers, celebrated Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) unveiling of ten new zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell-electric Xcelsior CHARGE H2 heavy-duty transit buses in Santa Ana, California.

The order was previously announced in April 2018, at that time becoming America's largest procurement and deployment of fuel cell-electric buses.

The buses, which are battery-electric vehicles using compressed hydrogen as an energy source, were unveiled during the celebratory event hosted by OCTA Chief Executive Officer Darrell Johnson and OCTA Chairman and Mayor of Garden Grove Steve Jones, alongside Congressman Gil Cisneros and other project partners including the California Air Resources Board (CARB), South Coast Air Quality Management District, and Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE). Together, the buses add sustainability to OCTA's fleet and will serve communities throughout Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, Santa Ana, and Westminster.

In addition to launching the ten Xcelsior CHARGE H2 buses into service, OCTA also debuted the largest hydrogen fuelling station in the US for public transportation, showcasing its $22.6 million investment in zero-emission transit.

“Since 1990, New Flyer has proudly delivered over 1,000 buses to OCTA and today is thrilled to support its continued evolution to zero-emission; reducing California's carbon footprint and providing cleaner, healthier, quieter neighborhoods,” said Chris Stoddart, President, New Flyer. “As OCTA works toward its 2021 vision focused on sustainability, reliability, and innovative leadership in transit, New Flyer will continue to provide mobility solutions that protect the surrounding environment and build livable communities across Orange County.”

New Flyer has delivered nearly 10,400 buses into the State of California, and has over 200 on order or pending delivery over the coming year. New Flyer manufactures the Xcelsior CHARGE H2 in forty and sixty-foot lengths. The Xcelsior CHARGE H2 for OCTA is able to achieve in excess of 300 miles of zero-emission range without refuelling.
