President Joe Biden joined Proterra CEO Jack Allen, Greenville Mayor Knox White, and the Proterra team last week for a virtual tour of Proterra’s EV manufacturing facility in Greenville, S.C.
The President affirmed his continued support for electrified transportation on the heels of announcing the American Jobs Plan, including historic investment in public transit and the goal for all U.S.-made buses to be zero-emissions by 2030.

We can do anything if we put our mind to it.” @POTUS we couldn’t agree more - thank you for joining @Proterra_Inc virtually today at our SC facility & helping accelerate the transition to clean, quiet transportation for all. pic.twitter.com/y0Eovt83Xp— Proterra Inc (@Proterra_Inc) April 20, 2021
