4-01. Lenina Ul. between Butina Ul. and Zhuravleva Ul.
VMZ-5298 243. Line 6, Chita-II Station-bound.
The western part of Lenina Ul. is the beginning of the line to the neighborhood of Chita-I and TRZ. This section is also used by trolleybuses of Line 6 destined to Rynok (the market). 243 of VMZ-5298 type was the first of the set of 10 new vehicles built in Vologda delivered 11.2003.

ZIU-682G 227. Line 3 Sosnoviy Bor-bound.

4-04. Komsomolskaya Ul. / Belika Ul.
VMZ-5298 245. Line 3 Sosnoviy Bor-bound.
A road branching off in the background leads to Poselok Tekstilschikov and Poselok Energetikov - huge developments of apartment blocks at the outskirts of the city. Even though these developments generate more than 1/3 of passenger trips in the entire city, they are not served by trolleybuses. The reasons for that are considerable distance coupled with absence of direct access road, mid-route railroad crossings, and the untimely collapse of the Soviet Union.

ZIU-682V 168 on the left. Line 3 TRZ-bound.
VMZ-5298 245 on the right. Line 3 Sosnoviy Bor-bound.
The line to TRZ is served by Lines 2 and 3. The shared headway is between 1.5-2 minutes. This neighborhood is known as Chita-I, which name originates from the name of the adjacent railroad station Chita-I.
