Big Island welcomes state's first hydrogen bus

County of Hawaiʻi

The County of Hawaiʻi Mass Transit Agency will be launching the state’s first hydrogen bus.

This is a part of MTA’s goal to have an entire fleet of zero-emission vehicles by 2035.

A hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicle runs on an electric battery and hydrogen gas.

The 21-passenger bus will run through Kailua-Kona on routes 202, 203 and 204.

The bus will refuel at the Natural Energy Laboratory Hawaiʻi Authority.

Two more hydrogen buses are expected to arrive on the Big Island later this year.
