Tai`an Yangzhuang (Shandong Province) [CN] - Three articulated Trolleybusses for 1,75 km

K. Budach - 04.03.13

The fleet consists of three articulated trolleybuses: One BD562 of 1991, and two more recent SK562GP. The Service is very infrequent, being intended solely for the needs of the coal-mine workers and associated administrative staff. However, the number of passengers is such that some journeys require two trolleybuses operating in tandem. The line opened in 1978.
