Popular and efficient

This 18.7-meter-long articulated bus is very popular with both operators and passengers due to its excellent handling, comfortable seating and ease of entry. With its advanced 2-axle drive technology and intelligent steering system, the bus has impressive road-following ability even under winter conditions and in challenging topographies.

Its low emissions are one of the reasons why the Swisstrolley is in continuous service in Zurich, Winterthur, Fribourg, Neuch√Ętel, Lausanne, Lucerne, St. Gallen, Biel/Bienne and Geneva as well as Arnheim (Netherlands) and Solingen (Germany).

Quality of life on wheels

Trolley buses provide an optimum solution when urban centers start to push up against their capacity limits and need rapid access to new transport solutions. Especially if scarce oil resources and rising diesel prices are taken into account as well. Or if cities adopt stricter environmental standards to be met. For evidence of a true renaissance in trolleys these days, just look at Rome, Lyon, Athens, San Francisco, Seattle and many other cities. With its outstanding energy usage, the trolley bus is an attractive transport choice that is both quiet and emissions-free.
