Europe’s biggest fleet of hydrogen buses will soon be carrying passengers across Aberdeen as part of an Aberdeen City Council-led project to boost the hydrogen economy. Operators Stagecoach and First today announced the routes on which the green vehicles will be ferrying the public, as the final preparations ahead of the launch of the new services get under way. Aberdeen City Council Leader Councillor Jenny Laing joined First Aberdeen managing director David Phillips (right) and Stagecoach North Scotland managing director Steve Walker (left) to announce the vehicles are coming soon – before taking a short trip on one of the vehicles to get the whole hydrogen bus passenger experience.

The six-strong Stagecoach fleet will operate on the X17 Aberdeen city centre to Westhill route, while the four First Aberdeen vehicles will be in operation on the X40 Kingswells to Bridge of Don Park and Ride service.
