Schaffhausen trolleybus threatened

filed on: 26.06.2008 (26th Jun 2008)

schaffhausen trolleybus A group has been formed to campaign for the retention of Schaffhausen's trolleybus. The group does not yet appear to have established a campaign website, but an announcement appears on the web of Basel's Pro Trolleybus. The Schaffhausen service is currently truncated at the Neuhausen end due to building work. A fresh conflict has errupted over whether a new roundabout that is being installed should be wired. A study by the INFRAS institute has suggested using diesel buses and compensating the negative environmenatal imapct by non-transport measures.

A correspondent informs me that currently only 4 out of 8 vehicles are active and 114 is being cannibalised for spares (following fire damage).
