First U.S. Electric Bus Order for Nova Bus
The North Country Chamber of Commerce and NAmTrans are celebrating the announcement of an order by the Milwaukee County Transit System for fifteen electric LFSe+ buses to be produced by Nova Bus in Plattsburgh, New York.
“This is the news we have been waiting for. This is the arrival of the future,” says Garry Douglas, Chamber President. “The national and global market is clearly starting the transition to electric buses and Nova Bus along with its battery technology partners at BAE have positioned our area to be a very important part of this exciting new development. This places us not only at the heart of the changing transit market but at the center of the evolving clean energy, green technology economy. It all starts with the first order and that start is here.”
Adds Douglas, “We congratulate Nova Bus and their BAE partners for this historic order, and we thank them for choosing Plattsburgh as the place for this new production. It is a testament to their years of technology development and to the talent of our area workforce and suppliers. Onward and upward, and on the bus! An electric bus!”
