Detroit Department of Transportation 3900-3959 is wheelchair accessible.

Detroit Department of Transportation 3900-3959 were 2003 New Flyer Industries D40LF buses which were built in Crookston, Minnesota.

These buses, which were the first low-floor buses purchased by DDOT since two Orion IIs in 1985, and the first buses ordered from New Flyer by DDOT since 1993, feature anti-slip floors and roof-mounted Sütrak AC35 air-conditioning units.

Without much advance notice, the first eight vehicles from this series, all assigned to the Coolidge Terminal, were placed into service on Wednesday afternoon, February 4, 2004. 3916 was the first of these to enter service, when it was brought out on 60 Evergreen run 5 (actually operating on 22 Greenfield) at 1:43 p.m. The remaining seven were assigned that day to routes 19 Fort (then allocated to Coolidge due to the Gilbert Terminal, from which the 19 is normally assigned, being temporarily closed at the time), 21 Grand River, 41 Schaefer, 47 Tireman and 78 Imperial Limited. Beginning with this order, the D40LF became the standard for new DDOT orders until it was discontinued by New Flyer following the 2010 order.

27 of these buses were sent to the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation in November 2013 and became their 6000 series. Further units were retired within the next several years as New Flyer Industries Xcelsior buses were purchased, and the final units in revenue service were retired by July 2019.
