The test phase will be accompanied by much publicity: The departure times of the new trolleybus during this phase are announced on the VBZ homepage. On 25th February at 13:00, VBZ will attempt to achieve an entry in the Guinness Book of Records by inviting as many people as possible to attempt to board the trolleybus at Pestalozzi-Denkmal. On selected days, tours will also be operated with this bus on which author and journalist, Al Imfeld, will present Zürich's western neighbourhoods from his perspective.
