Agencies Showcase Proterra All-Electric Bus

The Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority (The COMET), Columbia, SC, and the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART), Tampa, FL, recently hosted events showcasing electric buses by Proterra.

The COMET displayed the bus at a press conference and later tested it on regular routes. Almost 60 percent of the agency’s current fleet comprises propane-powered cutaway buses, and the agency and Proterra are partnering to pursue a federal Low or No Emissions Grant to replace up to seven propane vehicles with electric vehicles.

HART and Proterra, joined by Hillsborough County representatives, invited public transit experts, elected officials, local media and the general public to the presentation and interactive event showcasing Proterra’s Catalyst® zero-emission battery-electric vehicle. The current HART fleet includes buses with diesel and CNG engines.
