Bratislava's public transport operator, Dopravný Podnik Bratislava (DPB), will be the first to operate a fleet of hydrogen-powered buses in Slovakia. The Ministry of Investment approved the project to purchase low-emission buses for the capital and signed an agreement with DPB on a non-refundable financial contribution.
DPB plans to order the first four hydrogen buses from the Polish company Solaris Bus & Coach. Solaris Bus & Coach submitted a bid of 24.4 million euros for the supply of 40 buses. The first four buses could start operating in Bratislava next autumn.
