WINNIPEG Transit is buying 58 new low-floor transit buses from local manufacturer New Flyer Industries.

The public works committee approved a $27.3-million contract for the 40-foot buses Tuesday.

New Flyer beat a bid from Nova Bus, a division of Volvo Group Canada.

Winnipeg Transit originally put out a tender for 64 buses. New Flyer put the price for the larger order at $30.17 million versus Nova Bus’ price of $31.19 million.

Transit said it opted to lower the number of buses in the order because the responding bids were higher than expected.

Funds for the bus purchase were set aside in the 2013 and 2014 transit capital budgets and surplus from transit’s 2012 capital budget.
