Fuel Cell Buses are An Electric Bus Option:

  • Fuel cell electric buses are just like battery electric buses, but instead of storing all of the energy in batteries, the electricity is generated on-board via a fuel cell.
  • A fuel cell is simply a device that transforms hydrogen into electricity.  Water is the only emission.
  • Fuel cell technology offers all of the performance of a diesel transit bus without any harmful emissions.
  • Fuel cell bus costs have decreased by 50% in the last 10 years and are expected to come down another 30-40% in the near future.
  • Hydrogen production integrates very well with renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
  • Fuel cell buses are being deployed in greater numbers all over the world.
