YEREVAN, November 30. /ARKA/. The Yerevan Municipality is to purchase
20 trolleybuses in 2007, Yerevan Vice-Mayor Slava Avanesyan told
reporters.

"This is a most positive fact for us because the Yerevan Municipality
has not imported trolleybuses since 1987," he said.

Avanesyan reported that the trolleybuses will be imported from Russia
and Belarus because their price in Europe is too high. One Russian
trolleybus costs $170-$180ths.

Avanesyan pointed out that the Yerevan Municipality is already
negotiating with the producers.

He said that the Yerevan Municipality intends to purchase 20-30
trolleybuses yearly until 2010.
