https://www.shuttle.uci.edu/route-cancellation-notice-w-line/ Fuel cell bus route cancelled due to expiration of funding.
Looks like the battery electric bus is winning the battle at University California Irvine.
The route cancellation doesn't seem to have anything to do with the type of bus, they aren't running it with any bus from now on.

In February, another fleet of BYD Alexaner Dennis battery-electric buses took over operation of a fourth London bus route. Route 153, operated by Go-Ahead London on behalf of Transport for London (TfL), runs an intensive service from before 05.00 to after 23.00 six days a week (with a slightly later start on Sundays).
The Route spans many of the City of London’s most congested streets between its termini at Finsbury Park in the north to Moorgate in the heart of the financial district.
The new fleet consists of 11 of the 10.8m BYD ADL Enviro200EV single deckers, similar to others operated by Go-Ahead and now a familiar sight on London roads. The well-proven zero emission vehicles entered service successfully and operate from the Northumberland Park Garage in Tottenham, north London. The new buses marked the transfer of the route to Go-Ahead from CT Plus. BYD has supplied the depot with its own-designed and manufactured charging points.
The other three ADL BYD serviced London routes, all with Go-Ahead, are the 521 and 507 from Waterloo and the 360 from Camberwell. Other routes and operators will receive fleets of BYD ADL electric buses in the coming months following tender wins by the partnership. . . .
