October 10, 2011
Greenville, S.C. | Oct. 10, 2011 – The ProterraEcoRide fast-charge, battery-electric bus is being featured today on the Jay Leno’s Garage website. Leno visited with George Karbowski at Foothill Transit in Pomona, Calif., where Proterra’s buses have been in service since late last year. In the video, Leno takes the Ecoliner (Foothill Transit’s name for the EcoRide) for a spin and discusses the future of public transit with Karbowski.
“Jay Leno’s Garage is known for showcasing the leading vehicles and technologies in the automotive industry,” said David Bennett. “To have the EcoRide bus featured by Jay on his website is a testament to the revolutionary nature of the bus for the public transit industry.”
