The New Flyer Industries L40LF is the liquefied natural gas (LNG) version of the popular D40LF model by New Flyer Industries. Although their exterior appearance is very similar to the DE40LF and GE40LF, the L40LF's roof tank is shaped slightly different, having a more boxy appearance.
The first L40LFs, serials 17160-17171, were produced for Laketran in Lake County, OH, USA. They are numbered 9751-9762.
Even though the last L40LFs were produced in 2006 (for Santa Monica Municipal Bus Lines in Southern California), it was still offered until the 2009 model year, when New Flyer discontinued the LF series of buses with the traditional style front and rear ends. In November 2009, New Flyer updated their website and removed the LF models from their lineup. The L40LF was replaced by the L40LFR.
