University of Georgia orders twenty electric buses

The University of Georgia has ordered 20 Proterra Catalyst E2 buses. A $10-million grant awarded to the university by Georgia’s State Road and Tollway Authority made the purchase possible.

The Catalyst E2 features two electric motors, 510 horsepower and 24.6 MPGe.

Catalyst buses have previously been ordered by Florida State University, University of Montana, Duke University and Alabama A&M University.

“Colleges and universities across the country are experiencing the financial and environmental benefits of deploying electric buses, which offer a smart solution for clean and quiet campus transportation,” said Proterra CEO Ryan Popple. “By deploying zero-emission buses, the University of Georgia will make a big impact in reaching its sustainability goals, reducing its carbon footprint and increasing alternative transportation on campus.”
