Nova Bus LFS

Welcome to the Nova Bus LFS gallery for Calgary Transit. Calgary Transit took delivery of it's first order of Nova Bus LFS in August of 2010. The order came as a surprise to many as Calgary Transit had been loyal to New Flyer since 1992 with nearly 650 buses delivered. The Nova Bus LFS are "3rd Generation" models in T-Drive configuration. Calgary Transit's Nova Bus LFS are powered by Cummins ISL9 engines with ZF 6AP1200B Ecolife transmissions. The buses are equipped with Luminator Horizon LED destination signs and Thermo King rooftop heater/cooler units. 37 American Seating Model 6468 seats are installed on the buses. The low floor kneeling buses feature 2 wheelchair posistions.

The first order arrived in August and September of 2010 and totaled an order of 30, all these units were built in 2010.

The second order arrived in December 2010 and January 2011, totaling 28 buses, these units were built in 2010 and 2011.

The third order arrived in April 2011, totaling 2 buses, the units were built in 2011.

The first 60 buses in the first 3 orders are identical.

20 more buses arrived in late summer and fall of 2011. These shared the specifications as the first 60 buses, the only difference is the lack of exterior door lights on these units. The final five buses in this order have had some seats removed and luggage racks installed as they are designated "Airporter" buses for the Rotue 300 Downtown-Airport BRT.
