Maryland To Buy 140 Clean-Diesel Buses For BaltimoreLink

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland transportation officials have reached an $81.3 million agreement to buy 140 clean-diesel buses to improve service on the BaltimoreLink transit system.

The buses will be purchased from New Flyer of America, based in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

The 40-foot long transit coaches will roll out on Baltimore-area streets beginning in 2018 to support CityLink and LocalLink bus routes.

New Flyer is the largest transit bus and motorcoach manufacturer in North America. The company has built nearly 800 buses for the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration since 2004.
