Hydrogen vehicles to hit the road from Monday 6th December 2021

The first of Birmingham City Council’s hydrogen-powered buses will begin to enter public service from Monday 6th December.

Operated by National Express West Midlands from the company’s Walsall garage, these Wright Streetdeck Hydroliner FCEV buses will be running on the well-used and frequent 51 service, which runs between Birmingham city centre and Walsall bus station, via Newtown, Perry Barr and Great Barr direct along the A34.

These buses are eventually intended to go on to service the new Sprint route which will begin operating in 2022 between Walsall and Solihull ahead of the start of the Commonwealth Games next year.

Further to my previous post god help passengers on the 51 if West Midlands Travel Limited are not capable of running a published timetable using normal buses after last night’s fiascos with the X8 no doubt this will be yet another disaster of corporate spin over realty it is coming fundamentaly clear that the management and employees of National Express PLC care about nobody but themselves God help customers of Stagecoach PLC operating companies welcome to the wonderful world of omnibus incompetence of Brum👹

It’s is excellent that thanks to National Express PLC that Brum is at the centre of bus technology. The hydrogen buses are at the forefront of advancement in the bus industry & is most welcomed
