Plans were announced for closure of city's 45km trolleybus network and subsequent replacement with hybrid buses:
http://enelsubte.com/noticias/mendoz...s-de-trolebus/



Details from Transphoto website:
http://transphoto.ru/city/1039/

Quote:
Mendoza, 10.12: The Mendoza State Governor Alfredo Cornejo proposed closing the trolleybus system and removing about 180 km of trolleybus overhead in favor of hybrid and electric buses, which will be pruchased by the national government. The new public corporation under state control will replace the current EPTM (Empresa Provincial de Transporte de Mendoza) trolleybus carrier. It will employ 200 out of EPTM's current staff of 480. The light rail Metrotranvia line will continue to be operated by the STM (Servico Transporte Mendoza).

Currently four trolleybus services remain in operation: 1 Parque (operated with 7 units), 3 Dorrego (4 units), 4 Pellegrini (7 units) and 6 UNC (3 units). The services 2 Villanueva and the longest route 5 Godoy Cruz — Las Heras are operated with 18 diesel buses (13 EPTM buses and 10 rented buses) due to roadworks and trolleybus rolling stock shortages. There are currently about 25 ex-Vancouver Flyer E901 trolleybuses (only about 13 operable) and 13 locally built new Materfer Águila trolleybuses (9 operable) on the property.

The offer by the Russian TrolZa trolleybus manufacturer to purchase 20 to 60 Optima trolleybuses at $210.000/unit (delivery included) with the low 3,5% interest rate 7-year loan from Roseximbank was rejected.
