A hydrogen bus has been put into service by state-owned Volánbusz on a commuter route on the outskirts of Budapest, according to autopro.hu.

The first hydrogen vehicle in Hungary's public transport fleet is being operated in a pilot program that will run for about three weeks.

The pilot program will provide useful data that can serve to put the technology into everyday use, state secretary for energy and climate policy Attila Steiner said at a presentation of the bus.

The Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen emission-free bus was supplied by the Hungarian Motorsport and Green Mobility Development Agency (HUMDA).
