Many of the world's best winter athletes will be converging on Whistler, British Columbia in early 2010 for the next Winter Olympic games and they will be followed by thousands of tourists. When those crowds descend on the resort town 70 miles north of Vancouver a lot of them will get around on the local buses, which by that time will consist of the largest fleet of fuel celled powered buses in the world. Twenty of the thirty buses in Whistler will be powered by fuel cells by the end of 2009 in a program funded by the federal and provincial governments. This will be the first transit system in the world that is driven predominantly by hydrogen.
