CLOUD, Minn. — The Southeast Area Transit District (SEAT) in Connecticut has exercised an option with bus manufacturer New Flyer of America Inc. for clean diesel buses.

The bus manufacturer based in Cloud, Minn., the US subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc. in Winnipeg, will supply five Xcelsior clean diesel, forty-foot heavy-duty transit buses, and six 35-foot buses.

The order was supported with federal, state, and local funding, and is part a fleet revitalization effort initiated by SEAT in 2017.

SEAT is a multi-municipal public agency, serving 10 towns in Connecticut.
