Trolleybuses in Moscow – 80 years!

This post is intended to summarize the information published (and unpublished) on our Facebook page about the celebration of 80 years to trolleybuses in Moscow – to publish all information in one place, and to show how the holidays can be arranged, in addition we might learn something 🙂

80 years ago, on November 15, 1933, first trolleybuses went to the streets of Moscow. Here you can see the poster for this occasion, which tells the story of one of the first trolleybus models – ЯТБ-3. These double decker trolleybuses were working on Gorky Street. Only 10 units of them were made, their height – 4.7 meters, number of passengers – 72 seats and 28 standing places (it was possible to stand only on the first floor). This trolleybus had such technological innovations of those days as ventilation, electric heating, well-equipped interior and even the score board ‘no vacancy’ at the entrance. It’s weight -10.7 tons, maximum speed – 55 km / hour.
