The New Flyer Industries MD30 is a medium-duty, low-floor transit and shuttle bus designed for a 10-year, 350,000-mile life. Part of the Midi range, it is a rebadged Alexander Dennis Enviro200Dart adapted for use in Canada and the United States. The first official operator of the MiDi is Autobus Paquette under contract to the CIT Laurentides north of Montreal.[1]

In May 2017, New Flyer and Alexander Dennis announced that MiDi production will be transferred in the fourth quarter of the year from New Flyer's Minnesota facility to Alexander Dennis's facility in Indiana. Sales, marketing and aftermarket parts will also be transitioned to Alexander Dennis with the full support of New Flyer. In total, New Flyer has produced 200 MiDi buses for 22 customers.[2]
