Three double-artic trolleybuses ordered

filed on: 19.05.2017 (19th May 2017)

VBZ has ordered three additiona double articulated trolleybuses from Hess. These are part of the option that was part of the 2011 order. These trolleybuses will have similar non-overhead line operational parameters to the single-articulated prototype 183.

It is interesting to see this spoken of as "Notantrieb" (emergency power) and no longer as alternative to overhead lines.
