The Lidobus history 

The Lidobus goes back to the "Landibähnli", which was used at the National Exhibition in Zurich in 1939. The Lanidbähnli was one of the special attractions at the exhibition, with its electric drive and open trailer for passengers. The Weggis tourism association decided to buy a replica in 1944, despite the turmoil of war. The "Elektrobähnli", as it was called at the time, consumed around 3,500 kWh per year.
In 1959, a new Lidobus with a petrol engine was purchased. The trailer was fitted with a fixed roof and from then on was closed on one side.
In 2002, the Lidobus trailer was completely refurbished and a new towing vehicle was purchased.
