Krasnodar, 31 October – Yug Times. By the end of November Krasnodar will reportedly receive 29 new trolleybuses.
In total, this year the fleet of trolleybuses will increase by 60 vehicles. Thirty-one trolleybuses have already arrived to Krasnodar. Several trolleybuses with an increased autonomous drive range already work on the route No. 4. After receiving the remaining trolleybuses and handing them over to the municipal trolleybus and tram depot, a new route No. 11 will be launched. The buses will ply between Krasnodar-1 Railway Station and Vostochno-Kruglikovsky Neighbourhood. The delivery of trolleybuses without autonomous drive range will allow to renew the rolling stock of routes Nos. 7 and 20.
“Up-to-date trolleybuses allow us to extend the existing routes and launch new ones,” said Andrei Belugin, Director of the Department for Transport and Road Facilities. He also added that the new trolleybuses are equipped with air-conditioning and many other utilities, including passenger accounting, the Talking City system. As the remaining trolleybuses have arrived and a team of drivers and conductors have been hired and trained, 18 vehicles will be launched on the new route No. 11
