“Rīgas satiksme” will test a hydrogen-powered bus

From today, February 6, until February 13, “Rīgas satiksme” will test a hydrogen-powered bus of the enterprise "Solaris Bus & Coach". The bus will carry passengers on regular routes and will run along the bus route No.55 “Abrenes Street – Jaunmārupe”.

Since the beginning of 2020, a hydrogen station has been operating in Riga, where the produced hydrogen is used for filling of 10 trolleybuses, however, with this volume of vehicles, the station does not work with its peak capacity. The test results of the hydrogen-powered bus will allow to identify the potential power consumption of the station, as well as the distances covered by the hydrogen-powered bus with one refill in the conditions of the city of Riga, as well as its consumption. Testing has been deliberately chosen in winter conditions, when the bus service is more complicated than in summer.


The hydrogen-powered bus is white and will visually differ from other "Rīgas satiksme" buses, but, as in any other vehicle, boarding and disembarking is organized through the middle and back doors. After boarding the vehicle, passengers must register the trip. The marked seats on the bus must also be observed. The stops will be announced by the driver.
