Shanghai [CN] - First of 60 Young Man Trolleybuses Arrive
J. Lehmann - 27.01.14
The first of 60 Young Man trolleybuses (model JNP6120BEV1) has arrived - the first new trolleybuses for eight years. They will replace part of the current fleet of 90 trolleybuses, while the remaining 30 are likely to be replaced in future.
Routes 6, 8, 14, 19, 20, 22, 24, 25 and 28 are operated at least partially by trolleybuses. Some of the drivers are only qualified to drive trolleybuses and this is given as one reason for the fleet renewal.
