Calif.-based agency celebrates electric bus

Posted on March 5, 2013

Proterra Inc. and the Stockton, Calif.-based San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) held an event in Sacramento to formally thank state agencies and the leadership of Gov. Jerry Brown for making the zero-emissions battery electric bus a reality in the air pollution challenged San Joaquin Valley.

The event included a bus tour and demo of the new Proterra BE35 EcoRide bus set to go into service for RTD in May.

The bus toured various state agencies in Sacramento, to validate the efforts of forward thinking agency leadership and staff who made zero-emission public transportation possible through grant supported innovation and to provide a successful example of a proven path forward for other industry leaders and governments who see value in manufacturing sustainable technologies.

The deployment of buses in Stockton was made possible by the California Energy Commission’s grant of $2.57 million under Assembly Bill 118 administered by CALSTART.
