Columbia University Getting 6 All-Electric New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE Buses
[/size]

December 21st, 2017 by James Ayre

New York’s Columbia University will soon be home to 6 fully electric New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE buses, now slated to go into service in 2018 as part of Columbia University’s Intercampus Shuttle network. This news follows a deal between New Flyer of America and Academy Bus.



The New Flyer Industries subsidiary was granted the contract by Academy Bus, as Academy Bus is the current contractor on record for Columbia University shuttle procurement.

In addition to the 6 Xcelsior CHARGE all-electric 40-foot buses in question, the contract also entails the purchase of 3 charging stations for the buses.




The new buses will be running routes between various locations in Manhattan, New Jersey, and Rockland County — with the expectation being to serve some 30,000 or so students per year.

“We are proud to support Academy Bus and Columbia University with their transition to sustainable transportation,” commented Wayne Joseph, President of New Flyer of America. “Our zero-emission, battery-electric buses not only lend positive environmental impact for students and the surrounding communities, but also feature American innovation in motion on the streets of New York and New Jersey.”

“Academy maintains a long standing mutually beneficial relationship with Columbia University,” stated Francis Tedesco, President of Academy Bus. “We are excited to bring New Flyer’s industry-leading technology on campus, and to assist the university with its aim of reducing emissions for the shuttle service.”


The deployment of the new all-electric buses represents part of efforts to achieve Columbia University’s Sustainability Plan. Notably, the deployment is being partly supported by New York State Electric Vehicle Voucher Incentive Funds (NYSERDA).
