In addition, they will feature modern camera systems to increase security, as well as updated information and check-in systems and air-conditioning for passenger comfort and convenience.

Slavoj Dolejš, director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Transport Company of the City of České Budějovice said:

“This contract is very important for us for the renewal of the vehicle fleet, at the same time it is also the largest investment in the history of the transport company, which will bring our passengers the most modern means of transport and thus improve the quality and attractiveness of public transport in our city.”

The new vehicles will join 57 Škoda trolleybuses already in operation in the South Bohemian metropolis.

Karel Majer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Škoda Electric in the Škoda Group said:

“We are extremely happy that we can further develop already strong relations with České Budějovice - a city that is home to almost 60 Škoda trolleybuses. We are ready to provide its residents with a reliable and sustainable public transport solution. Škoda 33Tr trolleybuses mean a shift not only in transport, but also in providing an extraordinary experience to every passenger.”
