La Chaux de Fonds trolleybus threatened

filed on: 26.05.2011 (26th May 2011)

Following the recent closures of the trolleybus systems of Lugano (2001) and Basel (2008) and the threats to both Winterthur (2008) and Schaffhausen (2009) (which could fortunately be overcome), and despite rising fuel prices, threats to trolleybus operations continue. The city of La Chaux de Fonds has announced that it will seek to replace its trolleybuses by hybrid buses by 2014. The decsion is being precipitated by a pedestrianisation plan, which would require the trolleybuses to be moved to a different street, combined with the high costs of operation (on what is, after all, a small system). The local greens have announced that they will oppose the plans. But will that be enough?
