Answer for Hydrogen Buses

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As part of my broader plans to transform London's bus fleet, Transport for London intends to purchase a further 22 hydrogen fuel-cell buses. Two are already on order for route RV1 between Covent Garden and Tower Gateway, and will join the existing fleet of eight vehicles later this year. At least 20 more fuel-cell buses are to be procured and will be introduced from 2018.
