Letter: Hydrogen fuel

Have your say

Like Kim Cowell (YEP, April 24) I would like to express my dismay at the misinformation given out by various supporters of the trolleybus scheme concerning alternative green solutions to transport pollution.

Progress in the development of electric buses is coming on apace. In Switzerland, the TOSA electric bus currently being tried out in Geneva has a range of 20km, is trickle-charged at each stop, and then takes between three and seven minutes to be fully-charged at the terminus.

In addition, why is no mention made of buses running on hydrogen fuel cells, a development which is set to revolutionise road and other forms of transport in general? With active encouragement from the European Union, Transport for London is already using hydrogen fuel cells buses on one route.
