New Flyer H40LFR

The New Flyer Industries H40LFR is a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid powered low floor bus. The first buses were built for BC Transit to operate and showcase in time for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Whistler, BC.

The hydrogen tanks and fuel cell are located on the roof of the bus. The batteries used for energy storage are located immediately after the front wheel on the door side. On the prototype, they were located on the driver's side immediately before the high floor section.

As of January 2014, this model is no longer in production. It has been replaced in the New Flyer line by the XHE40
