Osh [KG] - 30 New Trolleybuses with EBRD Funding?
J. Lehmann - 29.04.13
The municipal press office announced on 26.04.2013 that 30 trolleybuses are expected to be procured through the EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development). For this purpose, a feasibility study will first be conducted and then the legal framework will be determined.
The new trolleybuses will not only enable the fleet to be modernized, but also allow route 3, whose construction was interrupted several times, to be completed and route 2 to be operated with trolleybuses as a branch of route 1.
Already, two new trolleybuses were presented ceremonially to the public in early 2013. They cost 13 million soms (around 200 thousand).
Previously TrolZa delivered two new trolleybuses in late 2010. In addition the fleet contains four trolleybuses from 2001 and nine trolleybuses built between 1983-1987.
