Procurement Updates

  • March 25, 2021 | PACE Suburban Bus

    Chicago’s Pace Suburban Bus awarded ENC a contract for 44 additional 30-foot clean diesel Axess model heavy-duty transit buses. Pace provides public transportation services to the Chicago suburbs encompassing 284 municipalities and a service area of 3,677 square miles: nearly 15 times the size of the city of Chicago. Pace’s innovative approach to public transportation gives the agency a national reputation as an industry leader. “ENC has a long partnership with Pace,” said Mike Ammann, VP, sales, ElDorado National. “ENC has delivered nearly 700 heavy-duty low-floor buses to Pace over the past fifteen years. The latest Pace order is part of a contract for up to 164 30’ fully accessible low-floor ENC buses.” In Pace’s ongoing effort to modernize its fleet to benefit customers and reduce maintenance costs, the Axess 30-foot low-floor buses feature a 100% 304 grade stainless steel body structure and advanced composite exterior bodywork, creating a truly corrosion free transit bus. This is a key advancement in transit bus design and rust-free material integration. The 30-foot design is ideal for navigating neighborhoods and downtown areas where a conventional 40-foot bus cannot fit or is not desired.

    Nova Bus, leading North American transit bus manufacturer, is pleased to announce it was selected to supply 15 LFSe+ buses, Nova Bus’ long range electric buses, by the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS), the largest transit agency in Wisconsin and primary transit provider for Milwaukee County. This is Nova Bus’ first order of electric LFSe+ buses in the United States. “Nova Bus is an important part of the North country manufacturing industry and economy, and their newly awarded contract with the Milwaukee County Transit System is a testament to skilled employees and operation. I will continue to strongly advocate for Nova Bus and our North Country manufacturing industry in Congress!” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “We look forward to introducing the Nova Bus LFSe+ buses to the Milwaukee community,” said Martin Larose, Vice President and General Manager at Nova Bus. “These electric buses, which represent the perfect pairing of our proven expertise with the latest innovations in clean and sustainable technologies, is the perfect choice for the MCTS’ East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, an innovative project, first-of its-kind in Wisconsin, that will efficiently connect commuters through downtown Milwaukee and expand the sustainable transit footprint in the state.”
