King County Metro Transit to Purchase Up to 73 Battery Buses from Proterra
Jan 11 17
King County Metro Transit will acquire 120 all-electric battery buses by 2020. As part of this commitment, Metro will purchase up to 73 battery buses from Proterra. The first 20 are scheduled to go into service this year and 2019. King County Metro will purchase up to 73 all-electric battery buses from Proterra at a cost of up to $55 million, starting with 20 buses totaling $15.12 million. Charging stations to support the initial orders of those buses will range from $5.5 million to $6.6 million. The 40-foot battery buses have an estimated range of about 25 miles, with a quick charging time of just 10 minutes. Maintenance costs of all-electric buses are expected to decline versus hybrid-diesels, primarily because they have fewer moving parts. Eight of the buses are slated to go into service this year, 12 more in 2019.
