Honda Motor's project aims to expand the application of FCV which is currently only used for government and city offices. The test is also to mine data as a material for research and development to improve FCV performance.

Honda will conduct the test by partnering by Teito Motor Transportation Co. Ltd. in Miyagi Prefecture of Sendai, Omiya Jidousya in Saitama Prefecture of Saitama City, and Hino Traffic Co Ltd in Kanagawa Prefecture of Yokohama City.
