Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has started running a fleet of seven electric buses in part of a pilot program that the city’s transit agency can expand if successful. The buses run on a 19-mile loop on the D-Link route, with scheduled stops to charge at the Dallas Convention Center. Batteries stored on the top and bottom of the buses can fully recharge in less than 10 minutes to cover the full length of the route. The buses are built by California-based Proterra and cost about $970,000, roughly twice the cost of a compressed natural gas bus.
