Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) first long-range electric bus began regular revenue service on DART Bus Route 20.

With a range of almost 300 miles, the 40-foot Proterra ZX5 Max offers:

  • Six lithium-ion battery packs (four mounted under the bus, two mounted on the roof). Each battery pack stores 112.5 kWh of charge (675 kWh total).
  • Regenerative braking captures the energy normally lost to heat and returns it to the battery packs.
  • USB ports throughout the bus for customers to charge mobile devices.
  • Two large customer information monitors.
  • An exterior body built from corrosion-resistant materials.
  • Easy to clean vinyl upholstery on the seats.

The new bus will join the seven Proterra Catalyst 35 zero-emission electric buses that are currently in service on DART Bus Route 28.
