Transit Systems is investing in hydrogen fuel cell technology, which has advanced significantly in the last 10 years. With a fleet of 10 hydrogen buses in the Transport for London network, we believe hydrogen fuel cell buses can easily, affordably and efficiently replace large fleets of diesel powered buses in terms of capacity and performance.
England’s largest fleet of Hydrogen buses
In the UK, Tower Transit is an operator of hydrogen fuel cell buses that are part of the Clean Hydrogen in European Cities (CHIC) Project. Tower introduced its hydrogen buses in January 2011. The buses operate on a cascade fuelling system delivering gaseous hydrogen that has similar requirements (fuelling procedures and fuelling time) to a traditional diesel bus.
Battery-powered buses are seen as the future of sustainable bus services. We have subsequently undertaken extensive industry and local research into the technology and its potential capabilities.
