Clean Urban Transport for Europe

Clean Urban Transport for Europe (CUTE, HyFLEET:CUTE) is an European Union initiative to fund, among other things, local hydrogen-powered public transportation, especially by buses.

The CUTE project started on November 23, 2001 and concluded on May 22, 2006.

CUTE included public transportation projects of major European cities such as the HH2 project of the Hamburger Hochbahn. (HH stands for "Hansestadt Hamburg" and H2 for hydrogen.)

In Hamburg alone operated three buses powered by fuel cells. The remaining of the nine cities involved the project were London, Barcelona, Stockholm, Porto, Stuttgart, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, and Madrid. The cities were chosen to analyze a variety of climates, topographic conditions, and traffic volumes.

After the conclusion of the project, CUTE was succeeded by HyFLEET:CUTE ("Hydrogen for CUTE"). Hamburg's capacity was increased to nine vehicles. In 2006 it was announced that London is to purchase a fleet of 70 hydrogen vehicles by 2010.[1]
