Hydrogen Buses
Hydrogen is an extremely promising renewable fuel for public transport vehicles and the Group, through its bus subsidiary in the United Kingdom, Metroline, became Transport for London's first bus partner to operate hydrogen buses in June 2021.


On 23 June 2021, London took a major step towards reducing its carbon footprint when the Mayor of London, Mr Sadiq Khan, launched 20 new environmentally friendly hydrogen double deck buses - the first of their kind in England - as part of the Transport for London's (TfL) fleet. These buses, which produce no pollution from their exhausts, provide commuters with smoother and quieter journeys, thanks to less vibrations. They also come with free-to-use USB charging ports. These buses are now operated by Metroline from Perivale Garage on Route 7.
