Abstract: Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle technology is emerging as a promising option for the electrification of school or transit buses. For fuel cell electric transit buses, the U.S. government has set the fuel economy target at 8 miles per diesel gallon equivalent (MPDGE). However, life-cycle environmental implications of the 8 MPDGE target are currently lacking in the literature. In addition, no comparable target exists for fuel cell electric school buses.
