LINK Electric Tolleys Delayed at Least 2 Months

September 08, 2010

Hold that

trolley! On Tuesday LINK Transit announced a delay in their fast-charging electric trolley line. The

nation’s first lithium-ion battery powered trolley fleet is coming to Wenatchee… but you’ll

have to wait at least two months longer before riding the lime-green “Current” line.

scheduled for an October unveiling, the electric trolleys are delayed at least 2 months until the manufacturer can

obtain a crucial computer component.
But LINK General Manager Richard DeRock remains positive about the

decision to switch over some of the fleet to this somewhat untested technology.

The 5 electric

trolley’s in LINK’s “The Current” route will use state of the art rapid charging stations.

They will get at least 14 miles per charge, and a complete charge will take only 5 minutes.

/>KOHO’s Isaac Kaplan-Woolner spoke with DeRock about the delay in opening Wenatchee’s “The

Current” electric trolley system.
