location when returning the car and hit finish and lock on the app. For more
information on the sustainability of wave car here is Dr. Blekhman. Hello my
name is David Blekhman and a professor of technology at Cal State LA and I would
like to talk about hydrogen, clean transportation and the exciting shared
mobility WaiveCar program. Hydrogen fuel is a sustainable fuel it can be produced
from sunshine from wind, the electricity is combined with water and then water is
split to produce hydrogen and oxygen then we use this clean hydrogen to fuel
the cars. Hydrogen vehicles are going to be a very important component of future
mobility, hydrogen vehicles excel at quick refueling and long distance drive
so they will have a very major role in producing new transportation. We are very
excited to host the WaiveCar program and utilize shared mobility vehicles
utilizing hydrogen also in the future we are hoping to bring in shuttle buses
that utilize hydrogen, potentially forklifts and other technology so
to make our campus more sustainable and lead the way for other CSU campuses. If
you have any questions please feel free to contact commuter services at (323) 343-5277. Thank you so much for listening and we hope you have a safe
trip
