Trolleybus is not a common mean of transportation neither in Europe nor in the USA, as I noticed. Although in cities of the former Soviet Union they were quite common in the past. And they still survived in Vilnius. It maybe additional attraction, at least for a kid, am I wrong?

As I know, trolleybuses survived only in 3 cities in Poland including my hometown, Tychy. Well, trolleybuses are more expensive than buses and the company who runs them needs money from the city budget to survive . Each year there is a discussion whether to pay them and how much. I voted for trolleybuses - clean, silent and nice mean of transportation although the question is: trolleybus or (never and) new school, money for poors etc. Does it work the same way in Vilnius?
