Fleet numbers:
New Flyer Xcelsior XE40: 0011 - 0015
Proterra Catalyst BE40: 0016 - 0020



These buses are on a 3-year lease. The New Flyers will spend the first 18 months out of Quill Depot, serving the M42 and M50. The Proterras will spend 18 months of Grand Avenue, serving the B32 and B39 (although I can attest via MTA BusTime that 0016 once did a run on the Q59). After these 18 months, these buses will switch to the other depot (Proterra to Quill, New Flyer to Grand Avenue).

The Proterra’s are assembled here in Greenville, South Carolina. They have a large plant and charging station. Bus shells are parked on the side of the building. I did see one of these on a road test and once in a while I will see some buses on I-85 on their way to customers.
