Talking Transport Transformation: The future of trolley bus systems with Adrian Kobayashi
How does the future for the world’s almost 300 electric trolley bus networks look like? In fact, many systems feature outdated vehicles and low service standards due to decade-long under investment and neglect. Do existing grid infrastructures support a quicker electrification by modern vehicle technology? Or are cities with trolley bus systems limited by a technology lock-in? Together with Adrian Kobayashi, director of planning at Solingen’s municipal transport operator, we’ll investigate the case of a city which not only decided to maintain its trolley bus systems but is making it fit for the future.
