About the Hydrogen Bus Alliance

A number of international cities and regions with large bus fleets have formed an alliance on hydrogen buses. These cities and regions represent leading adopters of new bus technologies on their respective continents and plan to act as leaders in the move to cleaner fuels for urban public transit. At present, the alliance represents a cumulative fleet of over 12,000 buses and an average yearly purchase of over 1,200 city buses each year. A number of other cities and regions are keen to join the Alliance and we expect the size of the combined fleet to grow accordingly.

Aims and objectives of the Hydrogen Bus Alliance

The aim of the Alliance is to:

Demonstrate to potential suppliers of hydrogen buses and refuelling infrastructure that substantial markets exist for these technologies once key commercial targets are reached.
Communicate with suppliers on the practical targets and barriers to commercialisation of hydrogen buses and associated refuelling systems.
Achieve economies of scale where possible through demonstrating joint demand to suppliers.
Encourage suppliers to move towards the commercialisation of hydrogen buses as soon as possible.
Procure and operate hydrogen buses in public transport operation.
Share information and experiences with other cities and regions in the Alliance.
Act as a united body for dialogue with international funding and technology demonstration programs.
Increase the number of committed cities and transit agencies in the Bus Alliance.
