Out of the total $55 million Low-No funds awarded, 55 percent were granted to public transit agencies that partnered with Proterra on the grant application. The 29 Low-No grant winners?in 24 states spanning Alaska to Florida?will use their funds, a total of $27.5 million, to purchase or lease Catalyst® electric transit vehicles, battery systems and charging infrastructure. They include:

*New Proterra customer 

A cornerstone of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act passed by Congress and signed into law in December 2015, Low-No funds support the development of transit buses and infrastructure that use advanced technologies.  Eligible projects included those that replace, rehabilitate, lease or purchase buses, bus-related equipment and facilities.  Projects also included workforce development components to train the next generation of U.S. transit talent. 

As evidenced by the inclusion of large and small, urban and rural communities in these awards, electric bus adoption continues to grow among a very diverse group of transit agencies that are embracing the economic and environmental benefits of the Proterra Catalyst zero-emission electric bus.

"We applaud these transit agencies for their march toward zero-emission, all-electric fleets," said Ryan Popple, CEO, Proterra.  "As we build momentum towards a cleaner, healthier future, we are excited to partner with this latest round of Low-No recipients to help eliminate fossil fuels from their transit operations."
