New Flyer C40LFR

The New Flyer Industries C40LFR is the restyled version of the C40LF model from New Flyer Industries. It features a curved front end, as well as a smoother rear end with recessed taillights. The majority of the bus remains the same.

The C40LFR was launched on April 1, 2006 with Valley Metro in Phoenix, AZ, USA. It was produced until 2014, when the last C40LFR was delivered to the City of Phoenix (who operates under the Valley Metro name). Its replacement in the New Flyer lineup is the XN40.

In December 2016, several 2006 model year C40LFR units operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company suffered from cracked front axle beams during a period of heavy snowfall. This prompted New Flyer to conduct an investigation and, in March 2017, issue a recall for 1098 Low Floor models from model years 2005-2007 after determining the cause of the failures to be a manufacturing defect.[1]
