I was shocked when Connect Transit picked Proterra as their electric bus supplier. It appears the Board members appointed by the mayors of Bloomington and Normal didn’t bother to do a simple Google search. Plenty of stories were easily available detailing the problems with these buses and cities that quit using them because they weren’t performing as advertised.
Maybe CT was told they had to buy from Proterra to get all the free money from government. Proterra got at least $8 billion from the Feds while government buddies heavily invested their own money, interestingly they sold out before the bankruptcy was announced. (Solyndra 2.0)

Below are some of the payments made to Proterra, I might have missed some:
That is almost $9 million of your money stolen by Climate Change scammers. I’m sure you know the names, Jesse Watters did a report: Since I can tell most of you aren’t watching the video, the scammers are Al Gore, George Soros, and Jennifer Granholm. They all made money courtesy of government. (Your money)
