This study combines a quantitative analysis of real-world empirical dataset of zero emission buses used in the Italian Alps, with a qualitative analysis of driver perception. The quantitative analysis provides novel insights on a comparison between electric and hydrogen buses in terms of efficiency, consumption, sensitivity to external temperature, covered distances, and cost per driven kilometre. The qualitative analysis focuses on the social acceptance of drivers facing the transformation towards a more sustainable public transport sector.
