THE NEW ARTICULATED SWISS TROLLEYBUS: THE STANDARDIZED UST TROLLEYBUS

LES NOUVEAUX TROLLEYBUS ARTICULES SUISSES: LES TROLLEYBUS UNIFIES UST

In 1970 most urban transport firms in Switzerland were faced with the need of renewing or extending their fleet of trolleybuses. The association of Swiss public transport operators asked the main manufacturers in Switzerland to study a new, simple, robust, reliable, comfortable and economical trolleybus which would be easy to drive. The standardized UST trolleybus has just been created. This article analyzes its technical characteristics (bodywork, electrical equipment, braking, emergency running system), pneumatic equipment (compressors, brakes) and special driving aspects. (TRRL)
