The TROLLEY project, represented by the Lead Partner Salzburg AG and the project partners SZKT and LVB, participated in the Conference “New Horizons for Urban Traffic – Innovative Electric Bus Systems for Liveable Cities”, which took place on November 30th and December 1st, 2010 in Lucerne, Switzerland. The conference was organised by the TROLLEY project partner TrolleyMotion and was attended by more than 200 international guests. Besides speeches held by the project partners, a special highlight was the signing of the "Declaration for Electric Trolleybus Mobility" by the TrolleyMotion members Kummler+Matter AG (CH), Carosserie HESS AG (CH), Solaris Bus & Coach S.A. (PL), Vossloh-Kiepe GmbH (DE), Cegelec a.s. (CZ), ELBAS Schweiz AG (CH) and S2A Consulting GmbH (CH) in the course of the conference. By signing the joint declaration, the industry representatives want to demonstrate their awareness of the potential of electric public transport in European cities by tapping the vast potential of trolleybuses to transform transport systems from “fossil mobility” towards “electromobility”.
