Proterra to deliver 4 electric buses to S.C.

Posted on June 28, 2012

Proterra signed an agreement with the city of Seneca, S.C. to deliver four new EcoRide zero-emission transit buses and two charging stations.

The contract follows Seneca’s initial announcement in November 2011 of its intention to use funds from a $4.1 million Federal Transit Administration TIGGER (Transit Investments in Greenhouse Gas and Emissions Reduction) grant, along with local matching funds, to purchase Proterra buses.

Upon delivery of these EcoRide buses, the city of Seneca will be the first in the nation to operate a fully-electric bus system and to do so on a “fare-free basis.”

Operated by Clemson Area Transit (CATbus), these vehicles will serve both the city and the students of Clemson University. City of Seneca and CATbus officials believe this “green” project, with plans for future expansion, will not only greatly reduce fuel costs, but also lead to job creation and a more sustainable future.
