UK Trolleybus Systems

These pages list most trolleybuses operated by UK systems.

Trolleybuses are lists in fleet number order. Where fleet numbers are duplicated or skipped then they are listed in registation number order.

Initially the pages include fleet number, registration number, chassis type, motor manufacturer, body manufacturer and body type (single decker/double decker/open top).

The pages do not currently include purchase and disposal dates. This data could potentially be included to allow lists to be generated for specific years.

Currently only limited information is included for secondhand vehicles.

A couple of systems are missing where insufficient data is available. Note that registration numbers were not mandatory on trolleybuses until the early 1920s
