The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) says it has unveiled its first zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell bus as part of a continuing effort to expand and improve an eco-friendly transportation system.

OCTA says the new bus, which is wrapped with a mural of California poppies, is part of a two-year demonstration project to complement its existing fleet. The transport authority currently has approximately 550 buses, of which 97% run on clean-burning natural gas. According to OCTA, 100% of its buses will run on natural gas by the end of this year.

The program, which was funded by the Federal Transit Administration under the National Fuel Cell Bus Program, includes testing and demonstration of fuel cell bus technology.
