Durham Region Transit 8579-8598 are 2018 Nova Bus LFS buses. They were purchased through the Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative using money granted to Durham Region Transit by the federal government's Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) program. The money for 2018 allowed the region to procure 24 busses over 2017 and 2018 with a conditional order of 5 vehicles, the order was split 13 for 2017 and 11+5 for 2018. These vehicles are all replacements for 2003-2006 Nova Bus LFS's.

In October of 2017, Infrastructure Canada announced at a press release event in Ajax that additional funding would be provided to procure an additional 4 vehicles with intentions that they would be used for growth. These vehicles are expected in November 2018 with the final 5 remainder arriving in early 2019.

All vehicles feature blue seat maquette as featured originally in 8560-8565. They also all come equipped with the QStraint Automatic Self Securement System piloted on unit 8564. This order of vehicles will be distributed among Westney, Wentworth and Raleigh Divisions. All buses must be delivered by March 31st, 2019 to qualify for PTIF Funding.

Vehicles began delivery in January 2018.
