Abstract
Surface transportation in Mexico City contributes to pollutant gas emissions, favoring the occurrence of respiratory diseases in the inhabitants while also causing the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This study evaluates the use of a bus fleet powered by fuel cells, for sustainable development of public transport in the city. Three types of buses in four main routes of public transport in Mexico City are compared to determine their characteristics of required power and energy, fu...
