London is joining with five other cities from Europe and Canada to back hydrogen fuel cell buses as the future for clean, green bus fleets. The buses, which only emit water vapour, not harmful emissions, have been successfully tested as part of the Clean Urban Transport for Europe (CUTE) project. London was one of the original cities which took part in the project by trialling the fuel cell buses – three hydrogen buses are currently nearing the end of a successful trial on the RV1 route, which runs from Covent Garden to Tower Gate, serving City Hall.
Now London, together with Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, British Columbia and Hamburg, has signed an agreement to work together to develop and buy hydrogen fuel cell buses and make the technology commercially viable. Find out more on Transport for London’s website.
