Public transit agencies around the country are starting to buy Proterra Inc.’s battery-powered buses.

So far, however, they do not include the transit authority in Greenville, the city Proterra chose for its manufacturing plant and headquarters.

That will change if the Greenville Transit Authority is successful in its third application for federal funding to pay for a rapid-bus service using Proterra’s zero-emission vehicles.

The U.S. Department of Transportation is expected to decide on the request in March, said Carl Jackson, GTA’s executive director and transportation director for the city of Greenville.
