Salzburg, Austria, continues to lead by example and orders more electric trolleybuses for its urban transport system, bringing its total to 65 by 2017.
14 December 2012 – Salzburg, Austria, has maintained its commitment to eco-friendly electric mobility with the development of a quiet and clean trolleybus network. As part of its continued development of public transport, operator Salzburger Lokalbahnen has ordered 26 new trolleybuses from Solaris with an option for an additional 14 vehicles. They will be delivered by 2017.
Like the previous delivery, the new Solaris Trollino 18 for Salzberg will be built to a striking modern design, reaffirming how public transport by bus is an attractive option. Besides the dynamic exterior styling, passengers will enjoy the highest standards of comfort in an interior where attention has been paid to every detail.
Gunter Mackinger, Director and Operations Manager of Salzburger Lokalbahnen, said "We are delighted to have a tried and tested product in the further articulated trolleybuses from Solaris, which meet the high demands of our customers and staff. This allows us to successfully continue along the consistent path of expanding electric public transport in Salzburg."
