1996 New Flyer D40LF 7601-7644

In 1996, Calgary Transit took delivery of 44 D40LF's, all are still active. These buses are powered by the Detroit Diesel Series 50 engine with the Allison B400R5 (instead of the B400R4). There are 8 buses (7611-7618) set aside for single sided REMAX vinyl wraps. These buses were the first buses to have a ThermoKing heater/cooler unit. These buses all came with Vultron III destination signs. However, 7601 had a Meistar LCD sign installed and later removed and 7602 retains its Balios LED destination sign which was installed as a trial.

The majority of the photos in this section are taken by me (Kevin Lo). There are a few that were donated by Ashton Wong. Please do not re-use any of these photos without my permission or Ashton Wong's permission. Thank You
