EV Bus Manufacturer Reaches 1 Million Miles in Revenue Service

Proterra celebrates major milestone with event honoring transit agency partners as EV pioneers.

Proterra Inc., manufacturer of zero-emissions battery-electric buses, recently congratulated its customers on achieving a major milestone for the EV industry: logging one million miles in revenue service.  The company celebrated this achievement with an event at its plant in Greenville, S.C. honoring its transit agency partners for their leadership as EV pioneers.

Proterra presented each transit agency with an award recognizing them as one of the early pioneers in EV bus technology adoption and honoring their role in building the future of mass transit and sustainable urban mobility.

By combining performance, efficiency and flexibility, Proterra buses offer the lowest per passenger cost and environmental impact of any transit bus technology—electric, diesel, hybrid or natural gas. Proterra has now received orders from 14 different transit agencies in cities across North America.  Over the course of their 1,000,000 miles in service, Proterra customers have saved nearly 250,000 gallons of fossil fuel and have eliminated nearly 3.5 million pounds of emissions from being released into the environment.

Customers receiving the awards were:  Foothill Transit (Pomona, Calif.), WRTA (Worcester, Mass.), the City of Seneca, S.C./Clemson Area Transit, RTC Washoe (Reno, Nev.), TARC (Louisville, Ky.), VIA Metropolitan Transit (San Antonio, Texas), San Joaquin RTD (Stockton, Calif.), and StarMetro (Tallahassee, Fla.). 

Proterra offers a range of customer configurable buses featuring either fast charge or extended range battery technologies to meet a wider range of route and transit agency needs.
