Trolleybuses took over trams in 1950. A period of decline with gradual service cuts culminated in the mid-1970s with only two shuttle services left operating through the historic city center, with diesel buses operating all outer lines. By 1993 only one trolleybus line, number 7, remained in operation. Following a 5-year long system closure for a complete rehab 13.10.1995-13.05.2000, as well as new rolling stock acquisitions, the system received a new life. <p> A segment of the line on Via Emilia through the city center and Piazza Mazzini closes for traffic on Saturdays after 14:00 and all day on Sundays, during which hours alternative-route services 7A and 11A replace regular services 7 and 11. The Line 6 operates to Santi on weekdays only, and short-turns at Autostazione on weekends. Few select trips normally served with trolleybuses sometimes operate with diesel buses. <p> Light rail interurban line between Modena - Sassuolo, 19 km. long, operates since 01.04.1883; electrified sicne 1932; urban segment in the tunnel since 14.12.2003. <p> <b> Rolling Stock </b><p> A total of 29 vehicles:<br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21580.jpg "> Iveco 2471 Socimi 8883 </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 14 vehicles (11-24) (1986) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21101ao.jpg "> Autodromo BusOtto </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 10 vehicles (25-34) (2000) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21711vp.jpg "> Neoplan Electroliner N6216 </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 5 vehicles (01-05) (2008, 2009) <p> Formerly used vehicles:<br> <a hre=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/moldova/balti/photos/balti21150.jpg "> Fiat 668/F 122 Cansa CGE </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 4 vehicles (11-14) (1949-?) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21503free.jpg "> Fiat 668/F 131 Cansa Marelli </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 12 vehicles (15-26) (1949-1972) <br> <a hre=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/moldova/balti/photos/balti21150.jpg "> Fiat 2401 Cansa Marelli </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 2 vehicles (26-27) (1953-1967) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21000free.jpg "> Fiat 2411 Cansa CGE </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 6 vehicles (29-34) (1959-1986) (33 preserved as historic vehicle) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21511ao.jpg "> Fiat 2411 Menarini Marelli </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 6 vehicles (35-41) (1964-1986) <br> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/photos/modena21504ao.jpg "> Fiat 2411 Cansa CGE </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> 4 vehicles (42-45) ex-Livorno (operated 1974-1986) <br><p> <b> Photos on map </b><p> <a href=" https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=202048758546759425966.0004ef4d56028e144394e&msa=0&ll=44.644659,10.923672&spn=0.026014,0.038581 "target=_blank"><img src=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/modena_preview_map.jpg "></a><p> <b> Photo galleries: </b> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/1en.html "> City center </a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> <img src="http://ymtram.mashke.org/blank_color_box/blank_blue_1x1.jpg"></a> <a href=" http://ymtram.mashke.org/italy/modena/2en.html "> Suburban Area </a> <p> <hr> <b><a href="http://ymtram.mashke.org/ italy /"> BACK </a></b><br><p> <small><font color="#663333"><small><font face="Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"> Last updated: 04-Jan-2014 <br> 2002 Author: <a href="mailto:ymtram@gmail.com" class="alt">Yury Maller</a> - Usage of material found herein for public display is possible with authors' permission only. </font></small></font></small><br>
