New Flyer Industries Ltd.

These buses have an Electric Transit Operator "ETO" controller that controls the bus door motor function which may have a software defect which can cause failure of the rear door guide roller linkage resulting in a bus' rear door opening unexpectedly while the bus is in motion.
If the rear bus door opens unexpectedly while the bus is in motion, there is an increased risk of injury for the passengers.
New Flyer will notify owners, and dealers will install a firmware upgrade, and replace the roller bracket plates, free of charge. The recall began on May 4, 2016. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at 1-204-224-6706. New Flyer's number for this recall is R16-005.
