The Cummins (CMI +0.5%) and Westport (WPRT +1.6%) JV says LA Metro, which has one of the largest natural gas transit fleets in North America, will order 550 New Flyer Xcelsior natural gas buses, powered with the Cummins Westport ISL G 8.9-liter engine to be deployed in 2014 and 2015, with an option to purchase an additional 350 buses in 2016.
