Rochester-Genesee, NY exercises an option for twenty articulated Xcelsior 
transit buses 
WINNIPEG, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX: NFI; TSX: NFI.DB.U) New Flyer Industries 
Inc. ("New Flyer" or the "Company"), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty 
transit buses in the United States and Canada, announced today that 
Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority ("RGRTA") has exercised 
options under an existing contract, signed August 2009 for 20 60-foot 
heavy-duty Xcelsior articulated clean diesel buses (40 equivalent units or 
"EUs"). The original contract was for 120 buses (240 EUs), of which 84 buses 
(168 EUs) still remain under that contract after these options are exercised 
and are included in New Flyer's backlog. 
"We are very excited to build our 60' articulated Xcelsior bus for 
Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority. This announcement 
builds on their recent contact award to New Flyer for our 40' Xcelsior buses 
and demonstrates their commitment to industry leading quality and value," said 
Paul Soubry, New Flyer's President and Chief Executive Officer. "RGRTA fleet 
will continue to have the full support of the New Flyer warranty, service, 
training, spare parts and lifetime customer care program." 
Ten of the twenty articulated buses are scheduled to begin production in the 
first quarter of 2013 with delivery anticipated to occur in the second quarter 
of 2013. The remaining ten will begin production and be delivered in the 
second quarter of 2013. The buses will be completely manufactured and 
assembled at New Flyer of America's St. Cloud, Minnesota manufacturing 
facility. 
RGRTA's active heavy duty fleet size remains at 253 buses, after both the 33 
bus New Flyer award, announced November 9, 2012 and the above 20 buses are 
built. These twenty New Flyer buses will be replacements for buses currently 
in RGRTA's fleet.
