Hamilton Street Railway (HSR), a public transport agency in Hamilton, Ontario, has placed a new order for compressed natural gas (CNG) Vicinity buses from Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of midsize, multi-purpose transit vehicles for sale in Canada and the U.S.
The order is worth approximately C$3.1 million. It represents the second order from HSR for delivery in 2018, says Grande West.
“We are very pleased to receive a follow-on order from HSR for additional CNG-powered Vicinity buses for delivery this year,” comments Jean-Marc Landry, the newly appointed CEO of Grande West. “HSR’s extensive history with CNG propulsion systems is a great fit for our Vicinity platform, and we are looking forward to making the first delivery of five CNG buses to HSR in April.”
