filed on: 13.12.2011 (13th Dec 2011)

Two Hess Lightram3s at Hardplatz It is being suggested that bus routes 69 and 80 may be on the radar for conversion to trolleybus operation. VBZ plans to publish a report on the future development of the trolleybus system next year. As recently as 2008, electrification of these routes was rejected on grounds of costs.
