The Geneva double-articulated trolleybus that will be evaluated in service in Zürich will operate here from 21st January to 3rd March. VBZ intend to purchase 17 such vehicles for 1.52 million Franks each. Additionally, modifications to stops for a maximum of 4 million are required and depot modifications for 3 million.

The test phase will be accompanied by much publicity: The departure times of the new trolleybus during this phase are announced on the VBZ homepage. On 25th February at 13:00, VBZ will attempt to achieve an entry in the Guinness Book of Records by inviting as many people as possible to attempt to board the trolleybus at Pestalozzi-Denkmal. On selected days, tours will also be operated with this bus on which author and journalist, Al Imfeld, will present Zürich's western neighbourhoods from his perspective.
