H-Cell Buses In Iceland

Further on my h-cell posting below, Iceland is now using h-cell buses:

Hydrogen, tested in buses from Amsterdam to Vancouver and used in the rockets of the U.S. space shuttle, is a clean power that promises to break dependence on oil and gas -- at least in Iceland.

"Sometimes I have to explain to passengers that it's just water vapor," the driver said of white clouds trailing after his bus along the streets of the capital, Reykjavik. "When it's very cold there's a lot of white steam."
This falls right into the captive fleet concept, also discussed earlier. Iceland's compactness makes for a good testbed. I wish them luck.
