But I doubt that the minister could even influence anything. Ministries don't have such power over companies owned by the city. In 2016 we still have trolleybuses and there are no plans to get rid of them.

(In 2002 and 2003 two short trolleybus lines were replaced by much longer bus lines, but since then trolleybus lines have been extended using diesel and soon, hydrogen, generator equipped trolleybuses.)
