The Neoplan USA AN440LF was a 40-foot low-floor transit bus sold in the United States. It was introduced in 1995 as the successor of the Neoplan USA AN440L.

Design

The AN440LF used an electrically welded, integral steel structure. Carbon steel was used for the majority with stainless steel used for areas such as the wheel housings, engine bay, and step wells. The galvanized steel roof and body panels were either welded or adhered to the frame. The front and rear of the bus were molded from fiberglass. The bus had a low floor front section with steps up to a high-floor section after the rear doors. The drivetrain is mounted in a T-Drive configuration at the rear.

The AN440LF featured a redesigned look in comparison to the previous AN440L. The lower front fascia was reshaped and received new headlights. The rear received a smoother appearance, round tail lights, and a hinged engine door instead of a pantograph-type engine door.
