Calgary Transit 2012 New Flyer "Xcelsior" XN40 


In early 2013, Calgary Transit recieved two 2012 model New Flyer XN40s. These buses, along with the 2013 Novabus CNG Demos, have been used to demonstrate the feasibility of CNG powered buses in the long term. As of late 2018, Calgary Transit made the decision to purchase 40 new Novabus LFS CNGs, and a result, no current orders for newer XN40 models have been placed.
