White Paper: Stand und Entwicklungstendenzen bei elektrisch betriebenen Linienbussen

Die Welt der elektrischen Bussysteme ist in Bewegung, mehr denn je. Neue Entwicklungen, wie die Ladung von Batteriebussen während der Fahrt, treffen auf schon bestehende Lösungsansätze mit punktuellen Ladesystemen. Bisher setzte sich keine Standardlösung für elektrische Busse durch, wie das bei Bussystemen mit Verbrennungsmotoren seit langem der Fall ist. Ein wichtiger Grund hierfür ist, dass elektrischer Verkehr – ganz gleich ob mit Fahrleitung, Batterien oder Brennstoffzellen - immer eine umfangreiche Infrastruktur erfordert, deren Errichtung und Betrieb wirtschaftlich sein müssen. Vorschau White Paper  Das White Paper wurde in Zusammenarbeit von trolleymotion und der Technischen Universität Dresden, Elektrische Bahnen erstellt. Gerne können Sie es unter bestellen![more]

Rosario [AR] - First Megapolis trolleys arrive

08.05.17 - In April, the first 5 of 12 type Megapolis trolleybuses arrived in Argentina. The Trolza-built vehicles reached their destination after a 3-month journey from Russia. Two of the single units have already been painted in the current orange and silver color scheme of the local operator SEMTUR, while the three others are still blue. The 12 new trolleys are intended for use on line Q, which thereby will feature electric services. Thanks to their auxiliary battery packs, the new trolleys can run under the existing catenary, before shifting into off-wire mode. Once back under the wires, the ... more

Beijing [CN] - BRT2-route electrified

03.04.17 - On 6 March 2017 the first of five new Foton-built articulated trolleybuses started electric services on BRT2. Although this route has already been in service since 2008, it previously was only used by diesel vehicles. The line has its own bus lane for most of the way and is presently being electrified over the full distance of 13.9 km. As soon as the infrastructure will allow for it, more trolleybuses will get deployed on BRT2. In order to sustain electric services, two substations have been built. The Foton articulated trolleys are fitted with lithium-ion batteries, to enable off-wire ... more

03.04.17 - On 24 March 2017, the local public transport authority published a tender for 15 new low-floor articulated trolleys. Bids are expected until 5 May, with delivery planned by late May 2018. The acquisition of these new vehicles is being supported by EU funding. As part of the same scheme, the extension of the urban trolleybus network is also foreseen, including the procurement of 25 more single units. The latter are to be acquired as part of a separate tender process. Electric battery buses and new diesel units with cleaner emission standards are also on the city's shopping list. ... more

Das "TROLLEY" - Video

The TROLLEY movie is another piece of the puzzle of the promotion activities of the "TROLLEY"-project to shape a new and more positive image of trolleybuses in Europe. The movie is based on interviews with local and regional stakeholders, which were performed in the TROLLEY partner cities Salzburg (Austria), Brno (Czech Republic), Eberswalde (Germany), Parma (Italy), Gdynia (Poland) and Szeged (Hungary). The movie highlights advantages of trolleybuses and raises hopes in what could be improved in the future to raise awareness of trolleybuses as smart, clean and green solution for urban public transportation.
