First new trolleybus is here

filed on: 21.07.2006 (21st Jul 2006)

Almost exactly a year after the order was placed, the first of 16 new articulated trolleybus of type Swisstrolley3 was presented in Zürich yesterday. This vehicle will enter service in September and be tested on all routes. The remaining 15 vehicles of this type will be delivered from January 2007 and enter service from February at a rate of two a month. They will predominantly be used on route 32.

These new buses supplied by Hess AG and with electrical equipment by Kiepe are costing 1.17 million each. They will replace Mercedes 0405GTZ from 1986-9 which will by then have accumulated 1.2 million kilometres.

The 17 double-articulated trolleybuses that are part of the same order will arrive from Summer 2007.
