Zero Emission Bus Rollouts: 4 Factors to Ensure Success As You Scale

By Tim Sasseen, Ballard Power Systems

Are you a transit fleet operator planning to convert to zero-emission buses in the coming years? Then this is the article for you.

You’ll learn why preparing a thorough transition plan early in the process is so essential to scaling your zero-emission fleet successfully—and why without such a plan, you’re likely to encounter roadblocks that are, largely, preventable. We’ll also share some key findings of other fleet operators as they developed their own plans to transition from diesel power to zero-emission buses (ZEBs).

A Road Map for Zero Emission, Fuel Cell Electric Buses in California

The California Fuel Cell Partnership released its second bus road map, Fuel Cell Electric Buses Enable 100% Zero Emission Bus Procurement by 2029, calling for 11 essential actions and setting new industry targets needed to widely adopt fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs) in the Golden State.

The road map’s release comes on the heels of two different, but inter-related dynamics: the continuing maturity of FCEB technology and fleets across the globe, and the increasing demand for zero-emission transit in California and across the U.S.
