Interim report on the trolley:2.0 project one year after project start
More and more cities are exchanging diesel buses for electric buses. The reason for this is not only the ongoing discussions about diesel driving bans. Because electrically powered buses not only reduce pollutant emissions but also noise pollution in cities. trolley:2.0 is intended to drive this development forward. The project, which was launched in April 2018, is now running for a year and is largely in line with the target plan. Read more here: PM_trolleymotion_Projektbericht englisch

Praha – visit of the new hybrid trolleybus system by Szeged Transport Company’s staff (member of trolley:2.0)
On 12th July 2018, the staff of Szeged Transport Company (SZKT) visited Prague, where we saw and asked questions from the representatives of Prague Capitol Transport Company’s new experimental battery trolleybus operation.
Due to the hilly nature of Prague’s terrain, it is worthwhile to convert the diesel-fueled high-capacity bus routes to electric buses. The local transport company wanted to establish the electric bus operation on the basis of the trolleybus production, which has a long tradition in the Czech Republic, and the power supply can be based on the extensive tram network.
