Trolleybuses

Trolleybuses in Moscow The trolleybus - an electricity-powered trackless vehicle - is the most widely-used form of state-run overground transport in Russia's larger cities, and trolleybuses have been running in Moscow since 1933. Although neither attractive nor particularly comfortable for passengers, they are remarkably environmentally friendly, and exceptionally cheap.

In the centre of Moscow, trolleybuses tend to be used predominantly by pensioners, students and anyone else who gets discounted fares on state-owned transport. They are usually crowded, and the combination of their unwieldiness and the ever increasing traffic volume in the city makes them extremely slow. If you are traveling further from the centre, however, you may be obliged to use one. Tickets can be bought from kiosks and metro stations, and many routes now have conductors in an effort to clamp down on fare dodging. Trolleybus stops are designated by a sign marked 'Tp', and trolleybuses are supposed to run from 06.00 to 01.00.
