The country's first hydrogen fuel cell bus has been unveiled by Auckland Transport as it moves towards an emission-free fleet by 2040.

AT chief executive Shane Ellison said the technology will give public transport operators more flexibility and complement existing electric bus services.

Built by Global Bus Ventures in Christchurch, the $1.175m bus will run between Howick and Britomart.

It will be run by transport operator Howick and Eastern for the initial two-year trial on route 70 from Botany to Britomart via Panmure.

The three-axle bus will use a hydrogen fuel cell to generate electricity along with batteries and the only byproducts produced will be water, electricity and heat.

What do you think of the new bus?

We Say/You Say: trans-Tasman bubble

Hi neighbours!

After more than a year of closed borders, Australians and New Zealanders will soon be able to jet-hop between countries after the government announced that the trans-Tasman travel bubble will be operational from April 19.

With quarantine-free travel now possible, are you more likely to head across the Tasman or travel domestically?

Fronting Australian media yesterday, Jacinda Ardern not only spoke of the excitement of families being able to be reunited, but also pitched New Zealand tourist activities to Australian viewers.

"If there is a hot spot in one of the states of Australia we may just act in the same way that another state would ... Just prepare that there may be disruptions, but what better place in the world to be stuck. Am I right?," she said.

The trans-Tasman bubble will operate on a three tier basis: Continue, Pause and Suspend. If there are a few cases in Australia linked to the border, quarantine-free travel will continue. Travel may be paused for 72 hours if there are rogue community cases and in the instance of a state or nationwide lockdown, travel will be suspended.
