Mississauga Transit Awards New Flyer a Contract for 24 Xcelsior™ Buses 
WINNIPEG, March 22, 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 Canada and the United States, announced today that 
Mississauga Transit ("MiWay") has approved the purchase of ten (twenty 
equivalent units or "EUs") Xcelsior™ diesel 60-foot articulated heavy-duty 
buses and 14 diesel 40-foot Xcelsior™ heavy-duty buses. 
The delivery of the 24th bus of this order will mark the 242(nd) bus that New 
Flyer has built and delivered to the transit agency since our first

buses will replace retiring New Flyer buses after many years of service to 
transit riders in Mississauga," said Geoff Marinoff, Transit Director, MiWay.

over the past twenty years," said Paul Soubry, President and CEO of New 
Flyer. "We're pleased to once again be awarded the opportunity to build for 
MiWay and are thrilled to have repeat customers that believe in the quality of 
our buses and understand the value of the strong support network that stands 
behind all of our products." 
All 24 40- and 60-foot buses are expected to begin production in the third 
quarter of 2013. Delivery of the buses is anticipated for the third quarter of 
2013.
