Trolleybus service in České Budějovice will be significantly strengthened. The South Bohemian metropolis will receive 35 new Škoda 33Tr trolleybuses with a total value exceeding EUR 28.5 million. This order further strengthens the successful cooperation between the manufacturer and the Public Transport Provider of the city of České Budějovice, which has lasted for three decades. A total of 57 trolleybuses are in operation in the South Bohemian metropolis, all produced by Škoda Group.
The current fleet of České Budějovice trolleybuses will be expanded by modern Škoda 33Tr vehicles. These are articulated 18-metre trolleybuses equipped with a modern information and check-in system. Passengers can look forward to a spacious and air-conditioned interior, which will make travelling around the city even more comfortable.
The new vehicles will be equipped with a traction battery for a range of at least 12 km. Thanks to this, they can comfortably serve even sections without overhead catenary. To increase safety, a modern camera system will be installed. The first 14 trolleybuses will be handed over to the transport provider in the first half of 2025, while the last vehicle will be delivered in mid-2026.
