History

During the past nine years preceding this order, the need to replace aging equipment that have surpassed the FTA minimal requirements has been the top priority for North County Transit District. This series originated from an option of 45 additional buses included in the contract of 23 New Flyer CNG low-floor buses made in August 2004; they exercised 33 of the optional order five months later. One year after the delivery of the 2005 New Flyer C40LF buses, the board decided to approve the remainder of the optional order, with delivery slated for summer 2007.[1] However, the buses were built in early fall 2007 with the actual delivery taking place at the end of that year to the beginning of 2008. They replaced all seven of the 1993 diesel Flxible Metros and some of the 1997 New Flyer D40LF buses, effectively placing the latter in the contingency fleet.

The buses here are mostly similar to their 2004-2005 counterparts; unlike the earlier series, they featured the revised 2002 dashboard layout with electronic odometer, 4th gen Allison transmission, slightly different MAN axles, and the revised EPA 2007-style rear-side cooling vents.

The CNG tanks from this series are presumably set to expire in 2027.
