Trolleybuses on route 83

filed on: 31.03.2020 (31st Mar 2020)

Although the occasional rare sighting of number 183 on route 83 has not been unknown, it is now official that the route is now being converted to trolleybus and that the eight new trolleybuses (200-207) presently being delivered are dedicated for this route. The electrification is being achieved without any new overhead line. The buses will cover the considerable unelectrified portion of the route using battery power (7.6 km without overhead lines vs 7.6km with overhead lines).
