“We strictly adhere to the work plan – the first Škoda 32Tr trolleybus has already been produced, and 12 more are in the production process. Some of the new trolleybuses will be running on the streets of the capital this year, and in the second phase we will get another 71 – this way we will renew the majority of the trolleybus fleet”, says Ignas Degutis, director of UAB “Vilniaus public transport”.

He shares that Škoda Group is already conducting all the mandatory tests for the first trolleybus, which will allow to assess the vehicle’s reliability, safety and operational characteristics – only then will the vehicle be issued with an approval certificate (homologation completed), thus confirming its suitability for smooth journeys on the streets of Vilnius.

The municipality reminds that the new “Škoda 32Tr” model trolleybuses will be low-floor, 12 m long and run autonomously, so they will be able to travel up to 20 km without contact network.

The trolleybuses will be equipped with a safety system – SOS and A-band buttons that record events on video, as well as collision protection and automatic fire extinguishing.

The trolleybuses will be fully air-conditioned and ventilated both in the passenger compartment and in the driver’s cabin. The public vehicle will also be adapted for people with individual needs – it will be equipped with a ramp, fastening belts, and special buttons for reporting the need for help.

Trolleybuses will have bicycle mounting equipment that will allow bicycles to be transported in its cabin.
