Miami-Dade Transit has ordered 33 40-foot Proterra Catalyst E2 electric buses and up to 75 Proterra plug-in chargers. The purchase is part of the agency’s plan to electrify at least 50 percent of the county’s buses by 2035. Proterra will work directly with the county to design and install the charging infrastructure.
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez said, “Deploying electric buses is one of the best actions we can take to improve our environment and our community’s public health. We are looking forward to working with Proterra to deliver clean, quiet transportation to Miami-Dade.”
Proterra CEO Ryan Popple said, “Miami-Dade has shown exceptional leadership in supporting transportation innovation and environmental sustainability. With their commitment to EV technology and their long-term vision to reduce fossil fuel dependence, they are helping to create the future for North American mass transit.”
