The deployment of the economic model has made it feasible to assess and specify the overall lifecycle costs of trolley buses. The intensive use of trolley buses makes them more cost-efficient than diesel buses. The future growth of trolley buses is contingent on their ability to travel without battery power.

Influencing the forecast scope of trolley buses is their ability to operate without a driver. Planning is going on to introduce driverless-operated trolley buses equipped with control guidance devices. Additionally, this electrical transport is predicted to favor public urban transport. This is especially so when the release of the rail system is not economically justified.
