Aberdeen, home to the World's First Hydrogen Powered Double Deckers!
Our Zero Emission buses will support our journey to clean air and show our commitment to Aberdeen's path to a cleaner, greener, climate positive city. Each vehicle plays a major role in reducing Aberdeen's carbon footprint by saving 84 tonnes of carbon per year, per bus - which means healthy, happy communities with quiet streets.

What is Hydrogen?
- Hydrogen is the simplest and most abundant element in the universe – made up of one proton and one electron.
- Hydrogen releases zero emissions, it’s clean, green, and only emits water from the exhaust!
- Hydrogen is made from wind and water.
What does this mean for Aberdeen?
Local energy for local communities – Aberdeen’s plans for making its own hydrogen means that our buses will be locally powered.
|When you travel by bus, you are playing your part in reducing Aberdeen’s carbon footprint.|
|What was that noise? Our hydrogen vehicles are silent - reducing the noise pollution in Aberdeen.|
|Just one Hydrogen Bus will save 84 tonnes of CO2 per year – the equivalent of removing 38 petrol, or 40 diesel cars from the road.|
|Fuel-cell electric buses produce no tailpipe emissions – the only by-products is water.|
