This one in Dniepropetrovsk, unlike most of European cities, they didn't run on segregated lines (which are not existed) making troubles for other drivers:

Even if they were there, they would be of no use, because there no practical way of issuing and collecting fines for bus-lanes violation.

The only way to have "clean" bus lanes is to have a physical barrier between them and the other lanes...

Issuing and collecting fines in the way it isn't possible to evade works too.

Does anybody know: Would it be possible to adapt the current trolleybus infrastructure to allow easy use by both trolleybuses and electric trucks?

Well, Siemens eHighway technology use some kind of laser to locate wires and keep pantograph in contact, so maybe it can be reprogrammed to detect switches and lower pants' down?

Or there is always an option to use hybrid catenary, that adapted both to poles and pantographs, as Riga is doing to it's tram network.

The article said that they're replacing these with conventional buses.

Anyways, that's the choice that Wellington, New Zealand has made.......and like it or not, the decision has been made.

What's done is done.

On the subject of cliches, you could also say as Caesar said himself - alea iacta est!

And may these be the last words spoken on the Wellington trolleybus system for now.

In Brazil many cities had extensive trolleybus lines



Today only Sao Paulo has them (1 line in Santos)









Although the Sao Paulo network used to be much bigger until 2002

Happy trolleybus day everybody!

Are there any real trolleybus day celebrations going on anywhere on this planet?

Hello friends!

I need examples of trolley systems, which wanted to close, but after examining the decision was reversed

According to wikipedia:

Quote:
In the late 1980s, the Dayton trolley bus system was headed towards closure. The RTA Board of Trustees voted in 1988 to phase out trolley bus operation, but this decision was reversed in 1991, after a consultant's study report indicated that retaining trolley bus service was the most cost-effective option over the long term, as well as having environmental benefits.

I think the trolleybus system in Arnhem has been a topic of discussion many times, but I don't know how serious the plans to complete scrap it have ever gotten:
