NOVA BUS signs contract with Chicago #NovaBus #VolvoBus @CTATransit

The buses will replace some of the 477 Nova Bus vehicles the Chicago mass transit operator bought in 2000 and are still in operation. Nova Bus edged out two rivals for the Chicago deal, Winnipeg's New Flyer and U.S.-based Gillig. Final assembly of the buses will be done in Plattsburgh, USA, to satisfy buy-in-America clauses in procurement contracts from public U.S. agencies. Last October, Nova Bus signed a $143-million contract with Toronto for 153 articulated buses whose deliveries are starting this year. The Nova Buses purchased by the CTA in 2000 have been in service since 2000 without significant issues. But they are at the end of their useful life.
