An agent-based model is presented of the transition of a personal transportation system based on conventional fuels to one based on an alternative fuel, such as hydrogen, requiring a new support infrastructure. The model allows two types of agents, vehicle owners and hydrogen fuel suppliers, to interact on a grid of roads representing a metropolitan region, and shows how their initial placement on the grid can lead either to successful or to unsuccessful transitions.
