"This is a fabulous day, not only for Hamden, but all areas served by the Greater New Haven Transit District. It's with great pride to welcome the first hydrogen bus serving seniors and persons with disabilities in the area. I applaud this accomplishment and look forward to the many great environmental achievements that will come from this agency in the future," stated Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson.
A collaborative effort and vision turned today’s launch of this 22 foot HyRide vehicle that will serve the senior population and people with disabilities into a reality. For the Greater New Haven Transit District it is one step in their mission to embrace alternative fuel sources for transit vehicles.
