To enter the program, though not the first time, failed and the capital of the earth. The idea of local community members. They were supported by officials of the municipality and of the regional government: purchase of a new electric vehicle money in the municipal budget there.
As already reported, “RG”, for transmission was selected trolleybuses 2003-2007 model years that are in good technical condition (including refurbished).
– These machines were mothballed and waiting for all the paperwork. Then were ordered delivery, and the ninth of June, the first three trolleybuses arrived in our city. As they stood in the depot and not used professionals Inc “Voronezhavtotrans” will need to test them, to conduct all the necessary technical operations.

In the Soviet time in Voronezh was only 17 trolleybus routes. Today only four of them (and some are duplicated by buses). Before the introduction of the regime of self-isolation on the line every day was about 30 “horned” cars. Due to the sharp decrease in the number of passengers, the movement of trolleybuses was stopped for two months, now its resume.

is out of line buses spend on average one hundred liters of gasoline per day. On their machines you vegetate so much for three to four weeks, noted public men. – Buses daily produce several tons of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and some of the heavy metals. Therefore, wherever possible, the bus should be replaced by trolleybuses, which does not produce a single gram of harmful substances and radiation. We need to move in the direction in which go the advanced countries: less buses, more electric drive train.
According to the estimates of activists, Voronezh edabuse and taxis (about a thousand) impact on the environment equivalent to 150 thousand cars. And almost half of the city’s fleet.
the Reform of public transport in Voronezh suggests that the number of trolleys for two or three years will rise to 90.
