Proterra secures three-year lease program with New York MTA

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

New York MTA has leased five Proterra Catalyst E2 buses, which will go into service this December and initially serve routes in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. The lease program aims to evaluate the combined economic, environmental and performance benefits of deploying an all-electric bus fleet. Over the three-year lease, Proterra expects MTA to reduce 2,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and save approximately US$560,000 on maintenance and operating costs.

The lease program will provide the MTA with actionable data on what works best in New York’s metropolitan environment and will help inform future electric bus procurements.
