Construction of two new trolley BRT lines began on September 19th in the city of Baoding, Hebei Province (河北省保定市).

Baoding is situated 159km southwest of Tian-an-men Square (city center of Beijing), it is the most important guardian city of Beijing. As Beijing is desperately trying to relieve its growing population pressure, Baoding is going to become an important diversion center.

Baoding is not a provincial capital, it never operated trolley-bus, in fact in Hebei Province, not even the provincial capital Shijiazhuang (shee-chia-choung) had ever operated trolley. Rumors began to circulate in February that Baoding would build a new trolley system, no one took it too seriously since such rumors had arisen before in other cities before and none of them had ever materialized. But in a surprise movement, construction of the trolley BRT system physically began on Monday.

The new BRT trolley system will consist two routes, route 1 from Baoding East High Speed Rail-way Station to Mancheng County Han Dynasty Tomb (an archaeological discovery site), a east-west cross town service; and route 2 from Da-wang-dian Industrial Park in Xu-shui District to Qing-shui-yuan Bus Station, a north-south cross town service.

BRT trolley coaches will be supplied by Beijing Foton Auto Industry, similar to those employed on Beijing BRT1. The difference between Beijing and Baoding is that Beijing's is left loading and Baoding's is right loading.

The construction will cost $510 million RMB (equivalent to U$76.5 million), each route will get 35 BRT trolley coaches, so a total fleet size will be 70 coaches. The system is expected to be built in 6 months.
