Surveys of the attitude towards hydrogen fuel cell buses among passengers and bus drivers were performed in Stockholm during the autumn of 2004. Another field survey of the attitude of the fuel cell bus passengers is planned towards the end of the CUTE Stockholm project, i.e. during the autumn of 2005.
The main results from the surveys are:
People are generally positive towards fuel cell buses and feel safe with the technology.
Newspapers and bus stops are where most people get information about the buses.
The passengers, furthermost those above the age of 40, desire more information about fuel cells and hydrogen.
The drivers are generally positive to the fuel cell bus project.
Although the environment is rated as an important factor, 64% of the bus passengers were not willing to pay a higher fee if more fuel cell buses were to be used.
