J. Lehmann - 22.06.09

The fleet consists of 22 ZIU-682 (fleet numbers 143 up to 167), five YuMZ-T2 (206-210) and six YuMZ-T1; the latter are being converted from articulated into two-axle vehides (YuMZT1R 200, 201, 205) by the Dnepropetrovsk works. The lasted trolleybus is also from there: one Dnipro E183 with its fleet number 168.
25 trolleybuses are required to operate the six routes, which share a common city centre terminus at Bul. Lenina (Mikrorayon). Routes 2, 5, 6 and 7 (the latter opened in July2001) are local routes between there and the Microrayon, 4 is a semi-rural route to Traca, connecting with long-distance buses on the main E40 road, and 3 is its urban shortworking.

In Artemivsk Route 2, on the one hand, and Routes 5 and 6, on the other hand, lead to Mikrorayon 4 by different ways. Route 4 lies within the town territory and leads to the very edge of the town. The out-of-the-centre terminus of Route 3 is the famous factory of champagne-type wine.
