Zero-emission transit buses powered by BAE Systems’ battery electric drive systems and fuel-cell electric drive systems have successfully driven more than two million miles in transit bus service.
BAE Systems offers two zero-emission options for transit bus agencies to help cities reach their goals of lower emissions. The first is a battery-electric system comprised of the same technology used in BAE Systems’ large installed base of electric hybrid buses — the only difference is the removal of the diesel engine for additional batteries. The second option, a hydrogen fuel-cell electric solution also uses the same components as the company’s electric hybrid systems but a fuel cell replaces the diesel engine.
BAE Systems is delivering battery-electric, fuel-cell electric, and electric-hybrid systems for transit buses in major cities across the U.S., Canada, and Europe — including New York City, Boston, Paris, London, Montreal, Seattle, and Vancouver.
Nearly 300 buses with BAE Systems’ zero-emission drive system are on the road today with battery-electric buses in the state of California and Paris, France, and fuel-cell electric buses across the U.S. in Ohio, Michigan, and California.
