Trambus is an electric bus that takes the energy it needs from the power line hanging in the air along the road. The name of the Trambus abroad is trolleybus, but the name of these vehicles in our country is referred to as trambus.
Trambuses show great similarity with the trams. However, trambles are driven by wheels as the trams move through the rails. In addition, two cables are used in trambus and one cable is used in trams. The reason for this is that the trambles do not complete the circuit because they use rubber tires. For this reason, two cables are used in trambuses. The other difference is that the trambles are wheels, which means that they have more mobility than trams, so they can move to the right or left.
Although the bodywork of the vehicles is produced as the same bus, the vehicles are driven by the electric motor running on the 400 volt. Trambus engines are quiet and powerful at maximum level. The vehicles have no clutch and accelerator pedal, and instead of the accelerator pedal, there is a special pedal, called a rheostat, which increases the speed by adjusting the current flow.
Thanks to the batteries in the Trambus, the vehicles are not affected by road works, power outages and the contactless cables. Nowadays, new trambuses can be operated with diesel fuel besides electric energy.
