Does this mean now there are two competing artics here, trying to win MTA's approval. Both are strong candidates, since NovaBus would build here in NY (so I hear), and Orion would produce the Citaro G, since it is from their sister bus maker of Europe.........

Daimler is working on converting the European Mercedes Citaro design for North American use. no small feat. Probably will not be available until 2012 or later in North America. Current rumors within Orion are that it will not be build in their plant in Oriskany NY. the Citaro bus will not carry the Mercedes or Citaro name. Mercedes auto group does not want the exclusivity of the auto brand diminished by trucks and buses using the branding.

 

Nova Bus on the other hand with a plant due to officially open for production in May 2009 has their artic bus in service in NYC presently. More are currently in production at their main plant in Montreal.

 

The Citaro is a flimsy piece of junk.

I'd take my NHTSA crash worthy New Flyers and Novas over EU based vechiles.

Oh really? And who are we to you? Aliens that live on mars? We live in North America where something durable in Europe can usually be considered flimsy here!
