Chamber Hails Strategically Important Electric Bus Order for Nova Bus by MTA

The North Country Chamber of Commerce is welcoming the announcement of a contract for five LFSe+ electric buses produced by Nova Bus in Plattsburgh by the MTA in New York City.

"While small in number, this is a strategically important step by the MTA as it begins its eventual full transition to electric buses," says Garry Douglas, Chamber President. "This initial order and others like it by other transit authorities will begin the process of gaining knowledge and readiness for larger numbers to come. The MTA is the nation's largest customer for transit equipment, and we welcome the opportunity for them to experience the high-quality electric buses now coming off the line at Plattsburgh. We thank the MTA and Governor Kathy Hochul and her administration for furthering the production of green transportation equipment in upstate New York, and we congratulate Nova Bus, its skilled workforce and its able suppliers on this significant milestone."
