Guangzhou [CN] - New series of Foton trolleybuses in service

K. Budach - 15.12.14

On 14 November 2014, the first of 46 new single units supplied by Foton Motor Co. Ltd entered revenue service in Guangzhou (Canton). The type BJ5120A trolleys were ordered in May 2014 following a call for tenders. All 46 new trolleybuses are expected to be delivered by the end of this year. Several older buses have already been withdrawn, but the entire fleet will still consist of about 300 operational vehicles. These are used to serve 14 daytime and one night-time line. Presently, the new Fotons have been deployed on line 104.
