Milan: ATM orders 50 trolleybuses from Solaris

Milan's public transport operator ATM has ordered 50 more trolleybuses from Solaris. The order for 50 Trollino 18s is the outstanding part of a 2018 framework agreement under which Solaris has already delivered 30 trolleybuses.

Brief review: in mid-2018, the Polish manufacturer announced that it had contracted with ATM for the delivery of up to 80 trolleybuses. 30 Trollino 18 trolleybuses arrived in Milan a year later. Now, the local transport operator is pulling the option for ATM to order the remaining 50 units. The first Trollino 18s from the new order are scheduled to arrive in Italy at the end of 2022. The order value for this tranche is expected to be just under €40 million.
