Proterra Announces Delivery Of 100th All-Electric Bus

The American electric bus manufacturer (and pioneer) Proterra has announced that it has now delivered its 100th all-electric bus — passing the milestone with the delivery of a battery-electric bus to San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) in Stockton, California.

The American electric bus manufacturer (and pioneer) Proterra has announced that it has now delivered its 100th all-electric bus — passing the milestone with the delivery of a battery-electric bus to San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) in Stockton, California.

The record, according to Proterra, serves as a demonstration of its leadership in the North American electric bus market, with Proterra capturing more than 60% of the market since its creation.

To put that somewhat differently, Proterra has now supplied 36 different municipal, commercial, and university transit customers — spread across 20 different states — with all-electric buses.

The press release provides more: “Many of the transit agencies serving these communities have also completed third and fourth orders for Proterra buses including San Joaquin RTD, King County Metro in Seattle, and Foothill Transit in Pomona, California.”

“Serving more than 687,744 people in San Joaquin County, RTD has added 10 more Proterra Catalyst battery-electric buses to its expanding fleet, bringing their total number of Proterra buses to 12. As the first agency in Northern California to operate all-electric technology, San Joaquin RTD exemplifies the growing trend among transit organizations to transition to zero-emission buses as the cost and performance benefits become clearer.”

To date, these Proterra buses have traveled more than 3,100,000 miles during revenue service — curtailing the emission of around 6,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. The use of the Proterra buses has reportedly also reduced fuel + maintenance costs by more than $2 million.

“We’re no longer at the dawn of the electric mass transportation revolution, we’re in the midst of it, and this milestone delivery to RTD proves that Proterra continues to lead the way as the industry charges forward,” stated Proterra CEO Ryan Popple. “As we deliver more buses, forge new partnerships and follow through on more repeat orders, we will continue to do our part as the North American market leader and will champion innovation throughout the electric mobility ecosystem.”
