Plattsburgh, United States, August 18, 2022 — Nova Bus, a member of the Volvo Group and a leading North American transit bus manufacturer, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract for up to 35 Nova Bus Artic, the 60’ clean air diesel bus model of Nova Bus, by the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii. The buses will be delivered over a three-year period.

With this order, Nova Bus will be adding up to 35 articulated buses to the 24 Nova Bus 40’ buses already part of the City and County of Honolulu’s fleet.
