According to the RFP document http://grandforksgov.com/home/showdocument?id=20255, the consortium members are

  • Grand Forks, ND (lead agency)
  • Bismarck, ND
  • Minot, ND
  • Omaha, NE
  • Lincoln, NE
  • East Grand Forks, MN
  • Macon, GA

So it looks like those cities will be able to purchase either Enviro 200 30'/35' or Xcelsior 35'/40' off this contract. It could be a few years before they do as it's a 5 year contract. 

A bit of an update on this consortium as there have been some purchases made:

  • Grand Forks has purchased 2 30' Enviro 200 as posted previously in this thread at a cost of $357,477 per bus.
  • Bismarck (Bisman Transit) has recently purchased 2 30' Enviro 200 buses at a cost of $367,307 per bus.
  • Minot has decided not to purchase buses from this consortium and has purchased 2 Eldorado EZ Rider buses instead.
  • Omaha has purchased an additional 8 Enviro 200 buses and currently has 12 on order, bringing their total order to 20 buses.
  • Sioux Falls, Iowa appears to have joined this consortium and has purchased 1 30' Enviro 200 for $338,711

What is the typical cost of a SuperLo?

Considering that at this point there has only been one order of them - GO Transit's for 253 units - one could figure out an approximate price per unit by taking the total order price and dividing it by the number of units.


Except that I have never seen a quoted total price for that order. Ever.


If you find it, that would get you into the ballpark.
