I just see that I forgot to wrote the type of trolleybuses in the previous post.

Lyon has Irisbus Cristalis ETB 18 (articulated, line C1, C2, C3), Irisbus Cristalis ETB 12 (line C4, C11, C14, C18) produced between 2001 and 2010 and MAN/Kiepe/Hess NMT 222 (S6) produced in 1999. 

 

Line C3 is the busiest bus/trolleybus line in Lyon with over 55,000 daily passengers.

     _____________________________________

 

For normal buses, the rolling stock in Lyon is less diverse than in Paris, it is limited to Renault/Irisbus Agora and Citelis.

There are also mini buses running in some S lines.
