Electric buses are emissions-free at the tailpipe, noise pollution-free and fossil fuel-free. But they’re not a plug-and-play proposition. In fact, the route to electric vehicles (EVs) is complex and includes twists and turns like infrastructure, financing, operations and more. The good news: Our team of EV specialists has the experience, expertise and partnerships to help you get started. And reach your electric bus destination.
Are EVs right for your fleet? We’ll help you analyze the road ahead, conducting route analyses, charging up your battery life knowledge base and mapping out operations so you can decide if electric is the path you want to take. If you decide to go electric, we’ll get you on the road to success with product support and service from our vast dealer network.
We do more than guide the way. We lead it with JouleyTM, our first electric bus. Jouley offers the same great Saf-T-Liner® C2 chassis and body customers love. And because it’s powered by Proterra®, the leading battery manufacturer, it’s proven to perform. We’ll also help you handle any speed bumps with our extensive service and support network, and offer advice on what happens at the end of a battery’s—or electric bus’s—life.
Want a partner who can go the distance? Meet Proterra, our partner in production.
