Up-To-Date Electric Equipment for Trolley Bus Application 785077
Among the various electric drive bus types only the trolley bus is not of an experimental character, anymore. According to economic investigations on the Hungarian conditions, a lead battery electrobus cannot even be spoken about as competition against the Diesel bus, whereas the trolley bus is much more economic in Hungary than the latter, if high traffic density is encountered. Along medium traffic lines this advantage is much lesser and certainly not sufficient in itself to justify the replacement of Diesel bus operation by trolley bus, unless other aspects support such a decision /environment protection, liquid fuel savings, etc./.
