Banska Bystrica [SK] - 4 new SOR/Skoda trolleys delivered

J. Lehmann - 14.12.15


On 16 November 2015, the local mayor as well as the director of the public transport company DPMBB presented the 4 newest trolleybuses to grace the streets of the city. These are 3 articulated trolleys of the Skoda 31Tr type as well as a 30Tr single unit that is identical to the 19 trolleybuses previously delivered in 2011. The 4 new vehicles have been purchased with the support of the national government, which provided funding to the tune of 2 million Euros. The articulated buses have been classified as 3101-3103, while the single unit has been numbered as 3020. All officially entered revenue service on 18 November. The articulated trolleys have been deployed on lines 1 and 3. Thanks to this process of fleet renewal, it is now possible to run all of the regular service diagrams with low-floor trolleys. The older Skoda 14Tr and 15Tr buses have been retained but now only run as reserve vehicles.
