Trolley Poles

 

Electric buses that don’t use batteries to store their power on board tend to be trolleybuses, which use trolley poles – a form of current collector –  to continually connect to overhead wires. Trolley poles have contact shoes that make contact with the current collector. Trolleybuses also have pole storage hooks and trolley pole bases. 

This section features suppliers who manufacture trolley poles and associated products.
