Salzburg [AT] - Excellent service during the EM
J. Lehmann - 23.06.08
During 2008 European football Championship Salzburg trolleybuses perform very well and many football fans are very enthusiastic about the performance of the trollreybus system. During the day trolleybuses shuttle visitors between Salzburg Arena and a new trolleybus-terminal in Griesgasse. About 2 hours before a football game the shutle starts between Griesgasse terminal and Europark bringing up to 13.000 passengers/hour to the stadium. At the end of the game trolleybuses bring visitors back to city center either from Europark or from Salzburg Arena. Shuttle service trolleybuses have a non stop running from Hanuschplatz via line 4 to Aigelhof and then via 2 and 1 to Europark.
Puplic viewing is on all days during the championship. So Trolleybuses work all nights until 2.00. Visitors from Athen and Moscow like to meet trolleybuses in service as they have in their home towns.
