has announced that its Collins Bus Corporation subsidiary has been
awarded a $26 million contract from the New York City Transit (NYCT) to
provide 400 paratransit buses.

Buses will be built to NYCT's custom specifications on a Ford F350
chassis. They will feature a flexible 20-foot length, 138" wheelbase,
single-rear wheel (SRW) design and wheelchair lift making the buses

contract represents the single largest commercial order in the history
of the company.

Transit," remarked Matt Scheuler, General Manager of Collins Bus. "It is
a privilege to provide Collins Buses to such a storied organization and
it's a perfect representation of our commitment to accessibility for
passengers of all abilities."

The NYCT contract comes on the heels of Collins Bus's 50th
anniversary and the launch of the brand's new low-floor bus product – an
industry-first innovation that offers passengers unparalleled benefits
with respect to safety and equal accessibility.
