2nd European Trolleybus Day - again a complete success!

On 17 September 2011, the TROLLEY partner cities celebrated for the second time the European Trolleybus. With this initiative the TROLLEY partnership would like to call attention to trolleybus transport as an important part of sustainable urban mobility in European cities. The activities again ranged from information campaigns and open days at trolleybus depots to painting competition (see winning photo from the painting competition in Szeged on the left) and sweepstakes on that day. The TROLLEY partners want to raise the general public’s awareness of trolleybuses as a clean, electricity-based public transport mode and hope that other trolleybus cities will follow this initiative in the future. Altogether, more than 20.000 people have been reached by the partner cities activities and the media reporting about the European Trolleybus Day. The TROLLEY partners also started a concerted activity this year by announcing an European photo competition “My trolleybus – my city!”. The winner will be invited to the next TROLLEY partner meeting in Salzburg beginning of December 2011. All winning photos from the partner cities will be exhibited in Salzburg during December.
