Nova Bus LFS (all models)


Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed in 4th gen Novas that when the bus makes a turn with full lock steering, there's this squealing kind of sound when the wheel ends up straightening out? Anyone know what that could be? I've heard it multiple times; seems to come from the driver side front wheel well. 

Heard it on multiple novas from multiple agencies.

I thought this might be of interest to some people. Found some Nova Bus brochures I saved a while back. RTS brochure c. 1999 RTS.pdf LFS brochure c. 1999 LFS.pdf LFS brochure

A 2017 model Nova Bus LFSe demo was on display at UITP conference in Montréal.  VIN 4RKYL82M66H9775900 2017-04

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y., Feb. 28, 2020 -- Leading North American transit bus manufacturer Nova Bus starts the year with the win of a New York State Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) contract.

The awarded contract for Nova Bus is for 165 - 40 ft hybrid buses (with BAE propulsion system) with options for 126 hybrid buses and 209 diesel buses for a potential total amount of up to 500 buses. Nova Bus’s superior delivery schedule and greater New York State Content for the hybrid buses are qualities recognized by the Nova Bus’s customers, and certainly contributed to the decision of the MTA. The first pilots will be delivered in May 2020 and the rest of the deliveries will begin in December 2020 and to be completed in 2021.

Has the LFX ever been offered with CNG, HEV, or Electric powertrains?

No. The LFX was just a BRT brand for the LFSA which the LFSA does have the HEV option. I have not seen them offer the CNG or electric versions yet. Checking Nova's website, it looks as the "LFX" is no longer being offered.

I think the thing that probably makes you think that the most is the front bumper, or lack thereof. Alexander Dennis had the same with the 2012 era E500s, but the operators (GO and OC Transpo) struggled with damage so the big black energy absorbing ones have been fitted on OC's 2017 E500s and the rear of GO's SuperLo buses. The other thing that stands out on that Nova is frameless windows with the surrounding area painted black and the hubcaps, all of which could be fitted to any other vehicle.

I've just seen this article about up to 85 layoffs in St-Eustache: https://laurentides.cime.fm/nouvelles/economie/340796/compressions-chez-nova-bus-a-saint-eustache

Didn't the TTC already choose Nova Bus for their next massive order...?

The order still hasn’t been placed, or even picked a winner for the bid I believe
