The New Flyer Industries GE40LF is a hybrid version of the popular D40LF model by New Flyer Industries. This bus uses a small gasoline engine and an electric drive.

The first GE40LF was produced for Omnitrans in San Bernardino County, CA, USA. It is numbered 0045. The GE40LF is mostly used in southern California, where emissions laws prohibit the purchase of diesel-electric hybrids, despite the fact that they are cleaner than CNG-powered buses.

After the 2009 model year, New Flyer discontinued the LF series of buses with the traditional style front and rear ends. The GE40LF was replaced by the GE40LFR in New Flyer's lineup.
