Embarassment for trolleybus opponents

filed on: 17.06.2007 (17th Jun 2007)

basel protrolleybusEven before the final result of today's referenda are announced (which are sadly not looking good for Basel's trolleybus), latest revelations are giving a new slant on the story. It is revealed that the proposed biogas plant will be unable to produce gas of sufficient quality to be used as bus fuel. This biogas would have constituted at least 50% of the fuel of the gas buses replacing the trolleybuses.

Interestingly however, the biogas produced would be of sufficient quality for electricity generation. But without trolleybus wires, how is that electricity going to get to the buses?

Let's wait for the next lame excuse.
