Part 5 (3701–3710)

[ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ]

Up until recently, no plans existed for MAZes to come to Depot No.3. It only happened after Depot No.2, refused outright to receive the trolleybuses which had been already assigned to it. Then a decision was made "at the top" to transfer the remainder of the batch to Depot No.3. The first trolleybuses arrived there at the very end of September 2005.

According to an already established custom, they were numbered 3701 upwards. As of now (January 2006) there are sixteen of them; they can be found on routes 3, 8, 9, 17, 19, 21, 22, 40.
