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.
