The FCHV (fuel cell
hybrid vehicle) bus that's been shuttling passengers around the Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya will soon be expanding its service
area. For one, passengers may soon find themselves riding the bus out to their plane on the tarmac. The bus, a project of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), is fueled up at a demonstration hydrogen fueling station
onsite at the airport. Toyota
Motor Corporation developed the fuel cell hybrid system for the bus. METI's program is called the Japan hydrogen
and fuel cell (JHFC) project, and the group is looking for companies and organizations to operate a fleet of fuel cell vehicles.
