What countries you can meet MAZ and Belcommunmash at?

One can see Belarusian buses and trolley buses not only in Belarus, but also abroad. Some of the models are available only abroad.

 

 

First time when belarussian vehicles were exported abroad was when 2 belarussian trolleybuses of 333 model were sent to Riga in 1998. About 10 more of the same model appeared in Riga in several years later. Also there were exported 321 trolleybus model. Besides,  in Riga it was developed a unique sample of belarussian trolleybus on the basis of 103 MAZ bus assembled by Ganz Transelektro with hungarian electricity inside.

 

By the way, 333 model is used not only in Latvia, but also in Serbia, South America and Argentina. In Serbia there are also 321 models.

 

In Moscow Belarusian transport vehicles are quite popular. For example, there are about 100 trolleybuses that were made on the basis of MAZ buses and are called SVARZ-MAZ. Trolleybuses that are made on the basis of 203 MAZ bus are used not only in Russia, but also in Ukraine Lithuania and Romania. They are made mostly for export and in Belarus are quite rare to find - only 2 are used in Bobruisk. The most unusual model of Belarusian trolleybus named Vitovt is used in Tula, Belgorod, Kaliningrad.
