The Arnhem trolleybus system is the trolleybus system in the city of Arnhem. It is unique in the Netherlands as the only trolleybus system still operating in that country. It opened on September 5, 1949.[1]

Active routes[edit]

The current network consists of the following routes:

  •  1  Oosterbeek - Velp
  •  2  Central station - Hoogkamp
  •  3  Burgers Zoo - Het Duifje
  •  5  Schuytgraaf - Presikhaaf
  •  6  De Laar West - Elsweide/HAN
  •  7  Geitenkamp - Rijkerswoerd

Formerly, route  4  was part of the trolleybus network, but was discontinued in 1950, after no more than four months of existence. The current line 4 in Arnhem is a diesel bus, but on a different route. The same goes for route  9 , which was discontinued in 2002. The number 9, too, is now used on a different route in the diesel bus network.
