MINSK, 13 July (BelTA) – Mosgortrans, an operator of ground urban transport in Moscow, has put a Belkommunmash trolleybus with a diesel electric engine into passenger service, BelTA learned from the press service of Mosgortrans.

The trolleybus is humming along the T25 route. It runs as an ordinary trolleybus from Budennogo Avenue to Sadovoye Koltso and switches into the diesel mode when going from Maroseika and Pokrovka Streets to Lubyanskaya Square.

“The trolleybus has low floor to make it easier for passengers to board and alight. The cabin has no turnstiles; access is allowed through all doors. Ticket validators are installed near each door,” Modgortrans press service said.
