NO! NO! Only a few of them are disabled-friendly (And not the trolleybuses!). It's still very new for the low-floor buses in China. You have to walk two stairs for newer buses and three stairs for older buses.

What if the bus ran off course? Wouldn't that snap the cables overhead? Are they fully run on electricity?

You're right, zergcerebrates. Those tolleybuses have the batteries for backup and they can run without the cables for around half an hour. So you don't have to worry to travel them if it is really run out of electricity!

Some facts for Guangzhou buses:

There are around a dozen bus companies in Guangzhou, including the nearby towns like Panyu, Huadu, Conghua etc.

There are 14 trolleybus routes which are FULLY OPERATED by the Guangzhou Trolleybus Coporation (广州电车公司 ) and they are mainly run on the north side of the Pearl River. The Trolleybus Coporation also operates the routes for using Diesel and/or LPG buses as well. For other bus companies, they use the Diesel and/or LPG buses.

The bus fare of (Urban) Guangzhou is mainly 1 Yuan for non air-con and 2 Yuan for air-con buses. You have to pay 2 Yuan for non air-con and 3 Yuan for air-con if you are going to Huangpu District from urban GZ. You can pay in cash (No change is given) or the Yangchengtong, a kind of Smart Card which can also use on metro, some ferries and on some business purpose as well.


Note: US$1=8.1 Yuan

Hong Kong should put some of these nice food product ads on their buses instead of the disgusting beauty care and pop star advertisements.

I think it's ok. The train looks great inside. Just that there could be better colour combinations...

From news reports, the train is built by 中国南车集团株洲电力机车有限公司 "CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Works"...

From http://www.zeloco.com/doce/about/profile.asp,

"... The works has built the long-term strategic fellowship and signed the combo agreement and the 10-year technical transfer agreement with SIEMENS. In March 2002 and in May 2003, combining with SIEMENS, the works won the orders of 168 sets of metro cars for Shanghai Mass Transit Rolling Stock Pearl Line Phase 2 and 120 sets for Guangzhou Metro Third Line, the contract sum of which are 1.62 billion and 1.41 billion...
