Its capacity is 88 and its capital cost is around Rs 50-60 lakh as it does not require batteries like the buses lithium batteries which cost Rs 1.5 crore.Trolley buses run on cables.If the trolleybus service starts in Bangalore, there will be a massive reduction in the number of people using cars.If this happens, traffic congestion will be resolved. We anticipate that as well. In three months we will release the report,” he said.
