Public Transport Sector Action Group
The Public Transport Sector Action Group advocates and supports deployment of hydrogen fueled public transport vehicles. The key objectives of the Public Transport SAG are to increase FCEB awareness and education towards transit agencies, de-mystification of hydrogen infrastructure, secure funding over next 3 years for hydrogen powered public transport.
The SAG is led by Chair Lauren Skiver, SunLine Transit and Vice Chair Tim Sasseen, Ballard Power Systems.
FCEBs have emerged as a one-for-one replacement (e.g. gradeability, highway speeds, fueling time and range) for conventional diesel and CNG buses over all types of transit routes, but with zero tailpipe emissions. Hydrogen produced from renewable sources like solar, wind and biogas ensures full carbon neutrality from a well-to-wheels perspective and significantly reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. As a result, FCEBs can make the biggest impact on the health-related effects of poor air quality in disadvantaged communities. Learn more about FCEB’s for your community >>
