Communities are growing and evolving, and with that, our transportation needs are changing. Now more than ever, we need smart solutions that provide safer, more reliable and cleaner transit. Every day, Proterra works to meet those needs, with the world’s best-performing zero-emission buses. Our revolutionary battery-electric buses help fleet operators abandon fossil fuels, improve environmental quality and reduce operating costs.
Proterra vehicles have proven themselves over more than 2.5 million miles of service in communities across North America, operating at a lower overall cost than any 35- or 40-foot diesel, hybrid or CNG transit vehicle. A revolution is taking place. Proterra is taking transit on a new route.
To date, Proterra buses have completed over 3,100,000 miles in revenue service, which equates to ~ 6,000 tons of GHG emissions reduced and over $2M saved in fuel and maintenance costs. On a total cost of ownership basis, these vehicles can save transit agencies up to $459,000 per bus over diesel-hybrid vehicles and up to $448,000 vs. diesel vehicles over their lifetime. Combined with the environmental benefits of a more efficient technology at 21 MPGe, vs. 4 MPG for diesel, and zero tailpipe emissions, this dollars-and-cents argument for transit electrification has attracted sizeable orders from customers like Seattle’s King County Metro, which placed the largest order of battery-electric buses to date by committing to 73 Proterra vehicles.
