Off-wire City-trolleybus operates in the inner city.
A new weekend City-trolleybus service started its operation between Fővám tér and Lehel tér in the fifth district of Pest. The low-floor, single trolleybuses run on Saturdays and Sundays only, and connect many of the biggest landmarks of downtown.
The new line connects Parliament, Szabadság tér, St. Stephen Basilica, Váci street, Hungarian National Museum, Flipper Museum, and three of the major market halls of the capital: the Great Market Hall at Fővám tér and the markets at Hold utca and Lehel tér, all frequented by locals and tourists alike.
The new passenger- and environment-friendly City-trolleybus service operates every 30 minutes on the route of regular bus 15 between Fővám tér and Lehel tér from 8:30 to 19:00 on Saturdays and from 9:30 to 19:00 on Sundays.
The new City-trolleybus is a pilot project to utilise the off-wire mode of the trolleybuses. The Skoda-Solaris trolleybuses are capable of running more than four kilometers without overhead wires, using their batteries instead, just like an electric bus. The quiet vehicles with a passenger capacity of 67 are all low-floor thus providing step-free access to passengers with reduced mobility or to those travelling with a baby carriage or luggage.
