Trolleybus system set for growth?
filed on: 13.12.2011 (13th Dec 2011)
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.
Meanwhile, manufacture of the new Hess trolleybuses has commenced. In contrast to the units already in Zürich, the new buses will not have auxiliary engines but use batteries when no overhead power is avialable.
