Edmonton Transit System 6003-6004 are New Flyer DE40LFR buses built in December 2006.

Originally built as series hybrids, they were withdrawn from service in 2009 after reliability issues with their hybrid systems. Both units were returned to New Flyer, where they were converted to diesel-only buses. They returned to service with ETS in April 2011.
