The city of Poznań’s public transport operator MPK Poznań has purchased 25 hydrogen-fueled buses from Solaris Bus & Coach. The tender was for 15 vehicles, but the carrier exercised its option of extending the order by another 10 buses. The hydrogen units will join the fleet of MPK in the second half of 2023. This is the largest order so far for Solaris hydrogen Urbino hydrogen buses.
The investment has been subsidized as part of the “Green Public Transport” program, launched by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management.
MPK Poznań already owns 58 electric Solaris buses, which account for nearly 20% of its fleet.
