Solaris Bus & Coach has been selected to supply 22 Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen buses to Île-de-France Mobilités. With the support of the CATP (Centrale d’Achat du Transport Public), Île-de-France Mobilités launched a tender for the purchase and maintenance of 22 hydrogen buses.

The 22 Solaris hydrogen buses will be a part of hydrogen pilot project by Île-de-France Mobilités with the aim to evaluate the potential of hydrogen technology for the region's public transport system.

Urbino hydrogen busses have been ordered and delivered to customers in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.
