Already tapped to be the first ever zero-waste Super Bowl, this weekend's huge sporting event will involve transporting fans in an electric transit vehicle. When the New England Patriots face off against the Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota's US Bank Stadium for Super Bowl LII, fans will be shuttled to the biggest football game of the year in the battery-powered Proterra Catalyst 40-foot bus commissioned by the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA).
The environmentally friendly transit vehicle was made in the USA. This weekend it will also deal with challenging circumstances: rush hour, peak weekend hours and heavily-traveled roads, not to mention forecasts of below freezing weather. A single 40-seater Proterra Catalyst bus will be deployed amongst other regular buses for Super Bowl 52.
