All Amsterdam buses will have to be completely emission-free in 2025, the municipality of the city and the local public transport operator GVB have decided. The current fleet of diesel buses will fully replaced by electric and fuel cell vehicles. The ferries used for crossing the IJ, the main waterway in the city, will also be getting electric drive.
Within two years the first forty electric buses must be on the road in Amsterdam. Besides, the city and the public transport operator will be investing in ways to generate green electrical energy, by installing solar panels on bus stops, for example.
By only using electricity of H2 as fuel, the air quality in Amsterdam should be improved. At this moment all vehicles and ferries are using diesel as a fuel,
Amsterdam has already a large network of electric trams and an underground system.
