Proterra, maker of the world’s first fast charge, battery electric transit bus will take part in the 2012 Ohio Public Transportation Association (OPTA) Conference, Maintenance & Trade Show, May 31-June 1, in Columbus, Ohio. This year’s theme is “Transit – Driving Towards Success.”
During the two day conference, OPTA members will have the opportunity to network, gain new insights, participate in educational sessions, partake in training, and interact with manufacturers and suppliers. The conference will be held at the Hilton Columbus Polaris. Proterra will be exhibiting at this year’s OPTA trade show and founder Dale Hill will be in attendance.
“Continuing to share information on technological advances in transit is very important,” said Hill. “We believe that the Proterra EcoRide fast charge, battery electric bus provides a realistic, cost-effective solution to transit agencies across the nation who face increasing fuel prices and tightening emissions standards. We look forward to speaking with Ohio’s transit industry representatives on this topic.”
