35 Natural-Gas Powered Buses on Schedule for Delivery

Sun Metro is expecting several new additions to their bus fleet in the next two months. Thirty five, natural-gas powered buses purchased at a value of almost 14 million dollars are on schedule for delivery in March of this year.

NABI
The City of El Paso contracted North American Bus Industries, Inc. (NABI), in late July, to provide thirty five, compressed natural gas (CNG) powered, forty-foot low-floor buses.

BUS ASSEMBLY
The thirty-five buses will undergo the first stages of assembly at a 21-acre bus manufacturing facility in Budapest, Hungary. The facility meets the strict requirements as outlined in ISO 9001 quality control standards and in ISO 14001 environmental management standard requirements. ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are worldwide recognized quality control standards.

The buses have already been completed and shipped to NABI's headquarters in Anniston, Alabama for final assembly. The facility installs standard American mechanical components with the same strict quality assurance requirements as in Budapest and as required by "Buy America" regulations.
