Abstract

The strategies for developing urban public transport systems are implemented nowadays through policy based on the principle of population mobility realisation with a limited use of passenger cars. The system of public transport with its performances, technology, quality, costs and environmental impacts represents one of the important factors that exert influence on the operation, location, size and structure of contemporary cities, their economy and social relations. A state-ofthe-art trolleybus subsystem is an efficient tool for attaining the goals of sustainable development and quality of life, especially in the areas of small and mid-sized cities. The trolleybus subsystem has a set of technical and technological, ecological, and economical advantages over other passenger transport subsystems.
