HFC buses… are reliable and affordable to operate, remove tons of pollutants from the air and, perhaps most importantly from an operational standpoint, take only minutes to refuel.

Kirt Conrad, CEO, SARTA

Stark Area Regional Transit Authority added its first hydrogen fuel cell (HFC) bus in 2016 and now has 19 HFC vehicles in its fleet.


  • Potential annual reductions for 8 fuel cell electric buses compared to conventional diesel bus operations, according to Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology:
    • CO@ emissions = 714 metric tons
    • Nox emissions = 352 pounds
    • Diesel fuel = 70,400 gallons
