Wheelchair Lift Problem Prompts New Flyer Bus Recall
WASHINGTON, D.C. --- New Flyer Industries is recalling MY 2002-2006 D60HF diesel 60-foot-high floor transit buses that are equipped with a Lift-U wheelchair lift or have aftermarket Lift-U control boxes installed.
A defect in the control box could cause the outboard ramp barrier to fold in toward a lift passenger. If this occurs, the passenger could suffer injuries, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
New Flyer is working with Lift U and will repair the transit buses free of charge. The safety recall is due to begin this month.
Vehicle owners can reach New Flyer at (204) 934-4876.
