2007 New Flyer D60LFR #6001-#6006

Welcome to the 2007 New Flyer D60LFR gallery for Calgary Transit. The first articulated bus to be purchased by Calgary Transit arrived in the spring of 2007, a New Flyer D60LFR with the fleet number 6001. The following five followed shortly after. Throughout the spring the buses were road tested and drivers were trained so the buses could be used in revenue service. The buses were launched in service onto Route 301 in July of 2007. These new buses remained in all white paint untill the new paint scheme (red/gray/white) was introduced. These buses feature shell seats with patterned padding, similar to the 2006 Winnipeg spec. and 2007/2008 New Flyer D40LF orders. Inner wall heating and motion sensor middle/rear doors are included as well. The buses have Luminator LED destination signs and a Cummins ISM engine. These buses were the first in Calgary to feature the new dual display Allison control panel on the driver's dashboard, the 6 speed version of the B500R (B500R6) is the transmission for these buses. These are the first Calgary Transit buses to receive New Flyer's redesigned front and rear caps. They are also the first buses since 1993 the receive double width rear doors. The buses can be found mainly working Route 301, 302, 305 and scheduled C-Train replacement shuttes. There are a limited number of Route 3, 101, 104, 181 runs and school routes 834 runs utilizing these buses.
