As the most remarkable instrument of the exhibition, the dark blue colored Ansoldo trolley bus stands out as the most remarkable vehicle. In İzmir, the trolleybus, which is about the city's history and its participation in the fleet of transportation, dates back to 1954. first tried it with the dismantling of the wires located on Mithatpaşa Street is now completely forgotten trolley car in Turkey, it continued their voyage on the same route as symbolic in the last period, but within the city that provide efficiency in transport and the adverse impact of transport was completely removed in time on the grounds. During the years when the vehicles continued to be on the agenda with their horns over the power lines, they often stayed on the road due to the horns falling on the ground during the voyage, and the vehicles behind the road were fearful. Another cutthrough of nostalgic trolleybuses was the power outages, which often left on the road. Sometimes the vehicles left on the electricity lines would stay on the road, again with the long rods connected to the line of the drivers would continue from the road.


The trolleybus vehicles, which lifted the trolleys in the years they came and were described as a revolution in transportation, became a pioneer in İzmir and were taken as an example in transportation in other cities. Vehicles that eliminated the power of horses in the land transport were both fast and comfortable, and the 100 was full of passenger capacity.

Retirement was not easy in the voyage of trolleybuses, which had been traveling for many years and attracting traffic from Izmir.

With the closure of Güzelyalı Troleybüs Deposu, in addition to the trolleybuses, which officially set the historic journey in İzmir, the employees who gave their life and heart to this job would retire from the sector where they were working close to 30. In fact, there was an interesting dönem retirement story larda in 80, where public transport with trolleybus continued. In 1984, the unused 15 trolleybus was dumped to the bay to feed the fish.


The first one was the trolleybus purchased by the mayor of the period, Selahattin Akçiçek, in March of 1954. It was the public transportation vehicles widely used in Germany and Italy.

Again, 1964-1966 year for the first time in the Güzelyalı'da ESHOT trolley Workshop trolley buses produced in Turkey between 18 pieces and this move brought great sound.


Trolleybus memories are constantly told as the urban legend. Some of the rainy weather in the wet floor when they are multiplied by electricity, some in the vehicle helmet ticketing, while some people go quickly while the trembling glass, while others want to go down when the nylon strap and the door to tell the door. The trolleybuses, which were usually dark blue, were exhibited with color and Karagöz and Hacivat patterns on the streets of İzmir after the interesting decision of Burhan Özfatura, the mayor of 80. On the other hand, unlike today's municipal buses, trolleybuses were on their way to the outer walls of the city.
