Nova Bus is a bus manufacturer based in St-Eustache, Québec.
Nova Bus which is a division of Volvo Buses, was created when Motor Coach Industries (MCI) stopped producing transit buses in 1993. The production of the Classic continued with Nova Bus, as well as the RTS that had been produced by Transportation Manufacturing Corporation, the US division of MCI, from 1987 to 1993.
The very last Classic was produced by Nova Bus in 1997, and the last RTS in 2003.
The US plants of Nova Bus in Roswell, New Mexico and Schenectady, New York were closed in 2003 due to the poor sales in the US. The US plants we're only used for the production of the RTS, from 1996 to 2003. Though, in February 2008, Nova Bus officially announced its intentions to open a new plant in Plattsburgh, New York. The new plant officially opened on June 15th, 2009.
Nova Bus is now counting on 3 plants, 2 in the province of Quebec, and the other in Plattsburgh, New York.
- Saint-François-du-Lac: That's where the structures of the LFS are manufactured, as well as others various parts.
- Saint-Eustache: Main plant where the complete assembly of the LFS is done. It's also the Headquarters of Nova Bus.
- Plattsburgh: The complete assembly of the LFS destinated to USA customers is done there. Though, some Canadian Buses could also be produced there.
The current products offered by Nova Bus are only Low Floor buses.
