This report studies a project being conducted in Europe, called the Clean Urban Transport for Europe (CUTE), in which fuel cell buses are being used in several cities' bus fleet. Using CUTE as a backdrop, a life cycle analysis was done on the emissions of several different types of buses, including diesel, hybrid diesel, ultra low sulfur diesel, and hydrogen fuel cell buses. This data was used to determine what would be the environmental advantage of using fuel cell buses.
