On the First Day Of Diciembre

Why does SEPTA use overhead wires for bus service on some routes? like 75 and 66?

 

The 59, 66 and 75 are trackless trolleys. Only a handful of transit systems in North America have them, but they are very green vehicles. They use electricity instead of diesel when running with wires.

are they cheaper to operate than regular bus routes?
