Torrens Transit General Manager Andrew Jenkinson said:

“South Australia has again positioned itself as a sustainability leader in the zero-emission race, with two hydrogen fuel cell buses now in service with Adelaide Metro.”

The transport operator’s first two hydrogen models were delivered to Australia in August 2022.

The buses are equipped with a fuel cell system developed by SinoHytec and Toyota and were produced by Chinese manufacturer Foton.

Michael McGee, CEO of Transit Systems said:

“We commend the South Australian Government for their commitment alongside us to deliver a cleaner, greener
commute. Transit Systems has once again set a new benchmark for what is possible in public transport, as we continue to work closely with our government partners, suppliers and stakeholders.

“We are proud to assist with decarbonising the city streets and we’re excited to deliver the next generation of transport in the zero-emission landscape.”
