As a winner of the 2022 New York Clean Transportation Prize competition, we will be bringing two hydrogen fuel-cell (HFC) electric buses into MTA service in the Bronx! These buses will serve eight routes throughout several neighborhoods in the Bronx and will refuel at a new hydrogen station at the Gun Hill Road Depot.
- Hydrogen buses’ only tailpipe emission is water—meaning no air pollution and no greenhouse gas emissions!
- The hydrogen to be used in the Gun Hill Road Depot’s station is produced using sustainable hydropower, meaning that the buses will be completely zero-emission.
- Hydrogen fuel-cell electric buses in cities in California and beyond have proven to be reliable, safe, efficient, and economical thanks to their low refuel times, long range, and other benefits. Read more about the safety of hydrogen here!
- Fuel-cell powertrains are silent and vibration-free, meaning a quiet and comfortable riding experience for passengers, a stress-free work environment for drivers, and reduced noise pollution for residents along their routes.
