MTD is the first in the nation to order hydrogen buses

MTD, whose current fleet of buses is already 85% hybrid, has ordered two Xcelsior CHARGE H2 zero emission hydrogen buses from New Flyer. MTD already has 175 buses from the bus manufacturing company. 

From the website Sustainable Bus:

The Xcelsior CHARGE H2 bus is a battery-electric vehicle using compressed hydrogen as an energy source, as well as Ballard Power Systems fuel cell technology. Fuel cell electric technology complements battery-electric propulsion with the ability to provide extended range of fully zero-emissions operations.

According to MTD, the buses will arrive in 2021.
