First two 3Emotion Fuel Cell Electric buses start to drive in Rotterdam

It is now widely acknowledged that the future of public transport buses will have to be zero-emission. Fuel cell electric buses (FCEB’s - also called hydrogen buses) are one of the technologies that meet that requirement.

Friday 28 September 2017 , the first fuel cell electric buses of the 3Emotion project, funded by the FCH-JU, will run for the first time on line 70 of public transport operator RET in Rotterdam.
