October 8, 2020. Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of mid-sized multi-purpose transit vehicles for sale in Canada and the United States, announces that it has received a purchase order from the Region of Waterloo.

The Region of Waterloo’s Grand River Transit Administration has ordered four Vicinity buses for a total purchase of approximately $2,000,000. The buses will be delivered in the second half of 2021.

The company is also pleased to announce it has completed the delivery of 34 compressed natural gas (CNG) Vicinity bus order. The new Vicinity CNG buses reduce greenhouse gas emissions and align with the company’s efforts to provide environmentally friendly transportation options. The benefits of CNG technology are both environmental and economic, with reductions in tailpipe emissions and operational costs.

“Grande West is proud to be part of reducing harmful emissions and making a positive environmental impact with a greener choice by offering CNG powered Vicinity Buses. We’re constantly striving for cleaner and greener options to help transit reduce its overall greenhouse gas footprint,” stated William Trainer, President and CEO of Grande West.

The 34 bus order was delivered during the second and third quarter reporting periods.

Grande West now has over 500 Vicinity buses in operation throughout across Canada and the United States.
