Last week on 22 and 23 January Szeged (HU) hosted TROLLEY’s final conference.
The conference highlighted the project results from each partner and together with the lesson’s learned, continuation plans concerning the pilot studies and future investments in TROLLEY were presented.
As a special highlight, Szeged’s first trolleybus with auxiliary battery was introduced by a local consortium consisting of the public transport operator SZKT, the University of Szeged and Szeged’s local energy provider. The ebus was presented and available for a test drive on-site at Szeged’s trolleybus depot, where the conference was being held. The almost 100 conference participants also had the chance to visit the TROLLEY Roadshow exhibition and to take a closer look at the recent local investments in trolleybus infrastructure undertaken by SZKT within the TROLLEY project.
Last but not least, nine further Trolleybus Declarations were signed by representatives from public transport operators, city administrations and the industry, thereby further expanding the European network of trolleybus supporters and raising the total number of signees to more than 60 advocates for trolleybus mobility.
