Pace is the transportation backbone of Chicago’s suburbs and one of the largest public bus service operators in North America, serving an area nearly the size of the state of Connecticut. Pace says its transition to a zero-emission fleet is a key initiative of its new strategic vision plan, Driving Innovation.

The 40-ft. Proterra ZX5 Max selected by Pace features 675 kWh of energy storage, the most onboard energy storage available in an electric transit bus on the road in North America today, the company says.

Proterra Transit battery-electric buses feature zero tailpipe emissions, saving approximately 230,000 pounds of greenhouse gases annually when replacing a diesel bus, the company adds. The company’s fleet of zero-emission, electric transit buses have displaced over 140 million pounds of CO2 tailpipe emissions.
