Flota actuala de troleibuze este compusa din 159 unitati. Operatorul de transport public, King County Metro, doreste sa reiinoiasca aceasta flota de vehicule si a realizat un studiu referitor la evaluarea sistemului de transport cu troleibuzul si alternativele de inlocuire a acestora cu:
-troleibuze noi cu motor auxiliar
-autobuze hibrid sau cu propulsie CNG (varianta diesel a fost exclusa din start).

Posibila desfiintare a retelei de troleibuz a provocat o reactie puternica in favoarea mentinerii transportului ecologic cu troleibuze.

Se spera ca inlocuirea troleibuzelor vechi cu 159 troleibuze (59 articulate) moderne sa se realizeze progresiv, in perioada 2014-2015.

Troleibuzele au fost introduse in Seattle [statul Washington], oras cu peste 608.000 locuitori, in 28 aprilie 1940. Intre 21 ianuarie 1978 si 15 septembrie 1979 transportul cu troleibuze a fost sistat, inlocuindu-se reteaua si vehiculele.

Intre 15 septembrie 1990 si 24 septembrie 2005 in Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel au circulat duo-buze articulate. Interesant e faptul ca duo-buzele utilizau reteaua de troleibuz pt. propulsia electrica doar in tunel, rutele nefiind "electrificate" in afara acestuia, neasigurandu-se conectarea cu restul retelei de troleibuz. In anul 2005 tunelul a fost inchis pt. lucrarile de introducere a tramvaiului (light rail) -de fapt un upgrade al "streetcar"-ului, reteaua de troleibuz nemaifiind folosita. Duo-buzelor li s-a inlaturat motorul diesel, fiind folosite, incepand cu luna octombrie 2005, ca troleibuze clasice.

Metro to partner with New Flyer on next generation of electric trolley buses

Zero emissions, using 30 percent less energy, they’ll replace worn-out buses

King County Metro Transit announced today it will replace its aging trolley fleet with new all-electric New Flyer coaches that will take about one-third less energy to power. Metro is second only to San Francisco in having the largest electric trolley fleet in the nation.

Metro plans to initially purchase up to 141 trolley buses – about 10 percent of its entire fleet – under a contract with New Flyer totaling up to $164 million. Future bus purchases will be dependent on fleet needs and whether Metro is able to avoid service reductions in the coming years.

“Electric trolleys have a lot of fans, and I’m one of them,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “They’re quiet, they run clean, they’re part of our transit heritage, and studies confirm they’re the best for moving riders in our very hilly and dense urban environment.”

Federal and Metro capital funds will be used to purchase the buses, with the first prototype expected to arrive in 2014. Riders can expect to see new coaches hit the streets in 2015.

The contract will also be a cost-saver for the county. Metro has teamed up with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA) to purchase replacement coaches from the same contract – a move that ensures both Metro and SFMTA get the most competitive pricing.

In recent years, Metro has refurbished older buses in order to extend their service life. But the electrical systems and motors on these aging coaches have become outdated and unreliable. A 2009 county performance audit confirmed that, compared to their diesel-hybrid counterparts, electric trolley buses are quieter, use less energy, are better on hills and are more cost effective to operate.

The trolley buses being replaced include 60-foot Breda buses originally purchased in 1990 to operate as diesel-electric and later converted to electric-only buses. Metro also is replacing its 40-foot Gillig buses that have antiquated 1979 propulsion systems. Based on age and operating costs per mile, they are less reliable and more expensive buses to maintain.

“We squeezed hundreds of thousands of miles and decades of use out of the Bredas and Gilligs we are replacing,” said Metro Transit General Manager Kevin Desmond. “But you can only make them last so long before it is more cost efficient to replace them than to repair them.”

Key features of the new electric trolley buses

The New Flyer electric trolley buses will use an estimated 25-30 percent less energy than the current electric trolley buses, and use regenerative braking that puts power back into the energy system.

The trolleys also will be able to operate off-wire on battery power for short distances – a feature that will allow the bus to reliably reroute around collisions without calling for a Metro push truck. It also will reduce the need to substitute diesel buses when construction affects routes along electric bus corridors.

The new buses will have low floors for easier and faster boarding and exiting. They include an updated system to secure wheelchairs, and the 60 foot buses will have three doors, air conditioning and the ability to kneel the full length of the bus.

Metro Transit operates a fleet of nearly 1,500 buses, and each year carries an estimated 115 million riders traveling almost 50 million miles.

Seattle's King County Metro Transit awards contract to New Flyer for up to 530 electric-trolley transit buses

New Flyer Industries Inc. ("New Flyer" or the "Company"), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in the United States and Canada, announced today that King County Metro Transit ("Metro Transit") of Seattle, Washington has awarded New Flyer a five year contract to build up to 530 Xcelsior's heavy-duty electric-trolley transit buses (or 710 equivalent units or "EUs") in both 40' and 60' configurations.

The contract contains a firm order for 196 EUs and options for up to 514 EUs. A quantity of 240 options for 40 Xcelsior's electric-trolley buses and 93 options for 60 Xcelsior's electric-trolley buses are intended to be exercised by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency ("SFMTA" or "MUNI") who were actively involved in the procurement.

The electric-trolley buses will be based upon New Flyer's best-in-class Xcelsior's platform and will utilize overhead lines to power the electric propulsion system equipment supplied by Vossloh Kiepe. For over a century, Vossloh Kiepe has supplied innovative electrical systems used on both road and rail vehicles. These vehicles will operate in both urban and suburban public transportation service networks with a special emphasis on economic efficiency and ecology. The buses will utilize active regenerative braking that puts power back into the energy system and they will be able to operate off-wire on battery power for distances up to five miles.

"Electric trolleys have a lot of fans, and I'm one of them," said King County Executive Dow Constantine, who says the new vehicles were needed to replace older trolleys that have reached the end of their useful life. "They're quiet, they run clean, they're part of our transit heritage, and studies confirm they're the best for moving riders in our very hilly and dense urban environment."

"We're privileged to be awarded this contract by Metro Transit including the opportunity to deliver buses to MUNI," said Paul Soubry, New Flyer's President and Chief Executive Officer. "New Flyer brought to the competition our highly successful next generation Xcelsiorâ„¢ bus and over 30 years of experience with electric-trolley buses."

Metro Transit operates a fleet of nearly 1,500 buses in Seattle and each year carries an estimated 115 million riders. New Flyer has been a big part of that, having built nearly 1,000 buses for Metro Transit since 1999 in a variety of lengths and propulsion systems. These new trolley buses will replace some of their older fleet built by other bus manufacturers and will mark the first time that New Flyer has built electric-trolley buses for Metro Transit.

The notice to proceed has been received and the 710 EUs will now be added to the New Flyer total backlog. The 40' pilot bus is scheduled to be delivered in May 2014 with production deliveries to commence in December 2014. The 60' pilot bus is scheduled to be delivered in October 2014 with production deliveries to commence in June 2015. All buses, including the propulsion system equipment, will be Buy America compliant and manufactured in North America.

Electric-only buses, of course, have the advantage over diesel-engined, or even hybrid, buses when it comes to environmental impact. Their sole demerit is the visual clutter provided by the aerial wires that serve up the electricity. And on the West Coast, hydroelectric plants keep that electricity reasonably cheap and plentiful, year-round. (San Francisco's fleet is powered by Hetch Hetchy. Seattle City Light's fuel mix is more than 92 percent hydroelectricity.)

Plus, the electric motors generate higher torque at low speeds, compared to diesels on steep hills, trolley buses accelerate from a standstill while diesels stay geared down to pull their weight.
