Creating Healthier Communities With Zero Tailpipe Emissions
At Proterra, we’re continually refining designs and looking for innovative ways to reduce impact on the environment. Proterra buses produce zero tailpipe emissions and decrease dependency on fossil fuels. Emissions are reduced by an astounding 229,167 lbs. of CO2 annually each time a diesel vehicle is replaced by a zero-emission bus. Particulate matter from traditional transit buses contains numerous harmful gases and upwards of 40 cancer-causing substances.
A typical diesel bus emits 229,167 lbs. of greenhouse gases annually, while a CNG bus emits 219,083 lbs./year and a diesel hybrid emits 163,286 lbs./year. A switch to zero-emission buses, which emit no tailpipe pollution, presents a critical opportunity to cut pollution, reduce oil dependence and make the world a better place.
To date, Proterra buses have displaced 180+ million pounds of CO2 emissions and 5+ million gallons of diesel fuel. Together we can improve air quality and create healthier communities with clean, quiet transportation for all.
