The world’s first hydrogen-powered double-decker bus has been introduced in London by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to cut bus emissions and tackle toxic air within the city.
According to the Transport for London, 20 half-a-million-pound buses will begin their public service next year. They will be used on links between East Acton and Oxford Circus and Alperton and Golders Green.
This is part of TfL’s £12 million investment, boosted by the EU with a further £5 million subsidy.
The vehicles are being made by Wrightbus in Northern Ireland.
“I am proud that London now has the largest zero-emission bus fleet in Europe,” said Sadiq Khan.
