The Mingachevir trolleybus system was a system of trolleybuses forming part of the public transport arrangements in Mingachevir, the fourth most populous city in Azerbaijan, for about 15 years at the turn of the 21st century.[1]

History

The system was opened on 15 April 1989. At its height, it consisted of three lines. The only remaining line was closed on 31 March 2006.[1]

The three lines operating at the height of the system were as follows:

  1. Садоводческое хозяйство (Horticultural Industry) — посёлок АзГРЭС (AzGRÈS)
  2. Варвары (Barbarians) — Депо (Depot) — Варвары (Barbarians)
  3. Дормаш (Dormash) — Депо (Depot)
