THE TROLLEY BUS: WHERE IT IS AND WHERE IT'S GOING

The application of trolley bus systems to modern day transportation needs was the principal focus of a four day exploration of current technology and uses around the world. Highlighted at the meeting were not only those transit systems that use trolley buses but also specific developments in areas such as vehicle types, infrastructure and propulsion systems. Improved reliability, good looks and economy have given the trolley bus a new lease on life. No one expects the trolley bus to replace the existing transit modes but it is believed that the trolley system can provide a viable alternative in high density metropolitan areas.
