Thank you Rashaad Vann and 41NBC for the news package on the 6:00 p.m. newscast on Monday, September 14 announcing our two New Flyer buses that were put into service yesterday. Riders and bus operators love the new Xcelsior XD 35 buses with Parker Smart Suspension (improves ride control and reduces swaying) and a bike mount for cycling enthusiasts.

The buses are 35′ long, weigh 24,500 lbs., hold 100 gallons of diesel, and have a top speed of 65 mph. Outfitted with Firestone tires and the latest safety equipment, the buses were manufactured in Anniston, Alabama. They also feature kneeling capability enabling the bus operator to lower the bus to the curb making rider entry and exit easier. MTA keeps Macon moving!!
