Metro Tasmania Zero Emission Buses

Hydrogen Electric Bus Trial

Hobart – coming mid-2024

Hydrogen Electric Bus Trial

Three Hydrogen Electric Buses (HEBs) will operate across Metro’s southern network for three years from mid-2024.

Like a Battery Electric Bus, a Hydrogen Electric Bus is also powered by an electric motor, with hydrogen gas used as the fuel. The hydrogen is converted to electricity on board through a fuel cell, with the ‘exhaust’ output from a HEB being just water vapour.

Metro’s HEBs will be refuelled at a hydrogen refuelling station, which will be installed at Metro’s Mornington depot.

Please check back later in the year as we get closer to this trial’s launch date.
