Manufactured by Proterra, DART’s new D-Link buses are built for the long-haul, with a battery life of around six years. They also are designed to last longer than a traditional steel body bus.
The advanced carbon composite body of the electric bus resists rust and minimizes repairs and maintenance -- keeping buses on the road, on average, six years longer than a traditional bus. Since it is a durable one-piece fiberglass mold, the body of the bus can still be used even after internal components need to be replaced.
See DART’s new electric bus for yourself July 28 at Dallas Farmers Market, from 10 a.m. to noon. Then, check out all the merchants, artisans and great restaurants that call the market home. It’s a day of fun for the whole family!
