Beginning in 2020, Greater Bridgeport Transit (GBT) tested the state’s first two electric buses called the Proterra Catalyst. In 2021, these buses operated on regular routes. Now, an additional three electric buses (Proterra ZX5) are expected to arrive later this year. Plans to add even more electric buses are already underway, with expectations to bring the fleet to 20% zero-emission buses by the end of 2024.
