History

These units are CMBC's first Xcelsiors, the first units to feature frameless windows, the first local units with air conditioning, and the last buses delivered with air-powered doors. These units are also the only New Flyer Xcelsior units in the Coast Mountain Bus Company fleet to not be delivered in the "Charcoal" livery and instead in the grey Sweep Restyled livery. Unlike other Xcelsior units in the Coast Mountain Bus Company fleet, all passenger windows can be opened.

Compared to other units in the fleet, the stop request buttons are unusually large and not consistent with TransLink's policy of having stanchion-mounted buttons recessed in design to avoid accidental pressing.

When delivered, these units had a different style of exit door touch bars compared to other conventional buses in the CMBC fleet. Instead of mechanical touch bars, these units were fitted with electronic touch bars which were thinner and more sensitive. Instead of pushing the bar, passengers only had to touch the bar to open the doors. These were quickly replaced with the traditional mechanical touch bars due to constant malfunction and damage due to misuse by passengers.

This was the first order to be delivered with CCTV cameras pre-installed. Compass Card readers were partially pre-installed with the reader bracket. The full reader unit was installed in late 2013 on all units.

Unlike other batches, these buses have dual seats in the front instead of single seats between the priority section and the row in front of the wheelwell.

These are also the only Xcelsior buses in the CMBC fleet to be fitted with New Flyer's Driver Maneuver Awareness System (DMAS). DMAS provides the operator with visual feedback as to whether they are operating the bus within acceptable driving limits. The DMAS illuminates various LED colours to indicate driving parameters relating to acceleration, braking, and turning.

In August 2018, unit 12024 received a prototype RapidBus livery to test different colour pallets. The livery was removed after the trial and the bus was repainted into the "charcoal" livery, making it the only unit in this series to not be in the grey Sweep Restyled livery.

Starting in September 2019, driver barriers were installed with installation completed on all units in November 2019. Starting in mid-December 2019, the headlight assemblies on all units are gradually being upgraded to newer all-LED assemblies.

Deployment

This entire series is based out of Richmond Transit Centre and can be found on the 49 Metrotown Station/UBC. Depending on operational requirements, these coaches can also be occasionally found on the following routes:

Between September 2016 and September 2017, this entire series was based out of Vancouver Transit Centre when it assumed all operations of the 49 Metrotown Station/UBC. Due to space constraints in Vancouver to allow for service expansion to the 49 service, operations and all coaches in this series returned to Richmond.
