Last week, the City of Seneca, S.C. and Proterra showcased their partnership at an event featured on the local FOX affiliate morning show.

Seneca recently signed an agreement with Proterra, the leading provider in zero-emission commercial transit solutions, to deliver four new EcoRide transit buses and two charging stations. These buses will make Seneca the first city in the country to operate a fully-electric bus system and to do so on a “fare-free” basis.

"Proterra is deeply committed to the success of its transit agency customers and to educating the public about the environmental and fiscal benefits of electric transit," said Proterra founder Dale Hill. "We welcome the opportunity to get all involved excited about clean technology and to increase demand for our buses through improved awareness."

Representatives from the City of Seneca and Proterra’s Hill were on-hand to answer questions and provide commentary. Attendees were also able to tour an actual Proterra BE-35 bus like the ones that will be delivered to Seneca in early 2013.
