Nova Bus receives its largest bus order in North America.

Nova Bus has been awarded the contract for Quebec’s transit authorities, coordinated by Association du transport urbain du Québec (ATUQ). 

The 5-year contract, covering the period from 2020 to 2024, calls for the delivery of 497 40-foot hybrid buses LFS HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and up to 1,028 vehicles on option to the transit authorities serving Quebec’s nine largest cities.

Quebec is our natural market and the basis of our reach across North America,” said Martin Larose, Vice President and General Manager of Nova Bus. “For over 20 years, we have created an ecosystem around our business, including a significant network of Quebec and North American suppliers, which enables us to proudly offer transit users high-quality, reliable, and durable buses, built and assembled entirely in Quebec.”
