Hope for Valparaíso

filed on: 06.06.2007 (6th Jun 2007)

The state of the iconic trolleybus system of Valparaíso (Chile) has recently given much cause for concern. The privately operated system, which features many former Swiss trolleybuses, is increasingly facing financial difficulties due to minibus competition. The operator has said it would have to close within two months if no solution could be found. However, the system enjoys much sympathy and President Bachelet herself has spoken out in favour of retention. Options being considered include priorities, susbsidies and state ownership.
