Earlier this week, Lewis County Transit accepted the first of three hydrogen-powered buses that will be added to its fleet this year. According to Lewis County Transit Executive Director Joe Clark, this is the “first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in the Pacific Northwest” and “they’re very quiet, and they’re emissions-free, so they make a good city bus.” Lewis County Transit staff and representatives from New Flyer were on site to conduct acceptance inspections on the new bus, which was produced and shipped from New Flyer’s production facility in Anniston, Alabama.
