MOSCOW, 13 November (BelTA) – A solemn ceremony to hand over 15 low-floor trolleybuses made by Belarusian OAO Belkommunmash took place in Novokuibyshevsk, Samara Oblast, Russia, the press service of the Belarusian embassy in Russia told BelTA.
The trolleybuses are fitted with air conditioners, CCTV cameras, passenger information systems, and a mechanical ramp with manual controls to make things easier for passengers with disabilities.
