Jihlava [CZ] - Trolleybus network extended
J. Lehmann - 04.12.17
On 30 November 2017, a 1.4 km long network extension was ceremoniously inaugurated with a special run along Vrchlického Street. The new network section connects the hospital stop Poliklinika along line C to Horní Kosov with the railway station Staré Hory. As part of the new timetable, line B now serves the new extension. Additionally, the newly launched line D runs every 24 minutes from the main railway station to Poliklinika, while the new line F runs from the depot via the city center to the new turning loop at Poliklinika. In turn, line B now longer terminates at Poliklinika and line BI has been discontinued altogether. The trolleybus lines A, C, and E remain unaltered, running from Monday to Friday at a basic interval of every 12 minutes and on weekends every 15 mins.
