1999 New Flyer D40LF 7651-7694

In 1999, 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. It was the last order of buses with Detroit Diesel engines in them, as future orders came with Cummins engines. These buses have a ThermoKing heater/cooler unit. This order was the first to feature the non-slip floor and LED tail lights and signal lights. These buses have Vultron III destination signs. These buses were also the last buses to have flipdot destination signs, as Calgary Transit switched to LED technology on future orders.
