Yorkshire Post:
"Video: Leeds trolleybus system gets green light at last"  (Link)

"THE government today finally green-lit a long-delayed £250m electric trolleybus system for Leeds.

"Transport Secretary Justine Greening said the service - the UK’s first modern electric trolleybus system - would generate up to 4,000 new jobs.

"Commuters from Holt Park in the north of the city to Stourton in the south will be able to travel into work on a network of modern, electrically-driven buses powered by a network of overhead cables. The system is modelled on those in Athens and Lyon."
