Abakan [RU] - Much routes, less service
J. Lehmann - 06.07.09
A new trolleybus route along Ulitsa Krylova was opened on 30th December 2005, connecting the suburb of Polyarnyi to the city centre. Routes 7 and 8 serve this extension to the system.
The route to PO Vagonmash has been cut back to the junction of Ulitsa Sovietskay a with Ulitsa Zavodskaya, although the new terminus is known as Ulitsa Skladskaya. The truncated route 2 now follows the one-way routeing of its subsidiary route 2A. Further to TM 270, route 7 is Polyarnyi to Ulitsa Skladskaya, whilst 8 is Polyarnyi to DK MPS.
Recent deliveries are VZTM-5284 No. 04, 14; BTZ-5276-04 No. 15;
