filed on: 25.01.2008 (25th Jan 2008)

winterthur mercedes abb o405 gtzThe town of Winterthur has decided to retain its trolleybus system and to spend 24 million Franks for the replacement of 21 trolleybuses. The decison was based on a study by the INFRAS institute, which showed that abandonemnt could save between 0.8 and 1.4 million Franks annually, but recommended against this for ecological reasons. Winterthur currently has three trolleybus routes (1 Töss — Oberwinterthur, 2 Wülflingen — Seen and 3 Oberseen — Rosenberg). The fleet consists of 31 vehicles, of which 21 Mercedes/ABB O405 GTZ delivered from 1988 (nos 141-161, these are the ones to be replaced) and 10 Solaris Trollino 18AC delivered in 2005 (171-180).
