Solution

In 2017, the National Parks Association asked RATP Dev to pilot a program with a Proterra Electric Bus, to determine future transit plans for Zion National Park. RATP Dev assisted in the lease of a 40ft. long-range Proterra bus for a three-month trial period. With the partnership of the local General Manager, the three-month trial period allowed our RATP Dev Mechanics, Operators, and Key Personnel to become proficient with the Proterra bus procedures to replicate the management, training and mechanical duties for a future fleet.
