A small trolleybus network primarily designed as a feeder to a Moscow-oriented commuter railroad service. The Lines 1, 2 and 4 provide combined plentiful service via the main trolleybus node between the Rastorguevo suburban railroad station and apartment block developments. The Lines 3 and 4 provide a rather sparse service to a small industrial park to the east of the town. The timetable is well adhered to, and service reliability is high.
Vidnoe is the smallest city in Russia (in terms of population) with trolleybus system.
