Proterra was started in 2004 to provide clean and affordable public transportation options for everyone. The company believes that mass transit buses provide the highest value application for battery electric technology.

The solution.

Proterra designs and manufactures the world’s most technically advanced battery electric buses. By building its own buses, the company can now beat the performance and cost of fossil fuel buses. The Proterra Catalyst bus has a durable and lightweight carbon-reinforced body, and can travel more than 400 miles on a single charge.

What makes them special?

Proterra provides clean, quiet and reliable transportation options that cost less over time. Proterra’s battery electric buses dwarf the efficiency of combustion and hybrid engine buses by achieving 28.1 MPGe, while producing no tailpipe emissions. For each bus, that means avoiding more than 220,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions per year.
