The Solingen trolleybus system (German: Oberleitungsbussystem Solingen), also known locally as the Stangentaxi, serves the city of Solingen, in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Opened on 19 June 1952, it is the largest of the three remaining trolleybus systems in Germany, and one of its lines extends into the neighbouring municipality of Wuppertal.
