New Flyer Industries succeeded Flyer Industries Limited when the company, which had been government owned, returned to private ownership. The new management and rebrand took the company, which had largely taken a back seat to General Motors and others, back into the league of top tier transit bus manufacturers. The D40LF (Diesel, 40 feet, Low Floor), and other similar LF models, served as a major catalyst to NewFlyer's return to dominance. The cookie-cutter design was an evolution from the product of the company's previous rendition, and was produced for almost 2 decades, being special ordered by New York City Transit after production of the model had ceased.
The Orange County Transit Authority, currently known as OC bus, was formed as a consolidation of the OCTD, serving the Santa Ana area, and other agencies. It serves urban and suburban areas southeast of Los Angeles.
The Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation serves New Hampshire's Seacoast region. Based in Dover, NH, COAST is a non-profit agency established to preserve and operate previously existing bus lines.
