Dongguan residents may be commuting around the city in an electric trolley as soon as 2017, reports Dongguan Times.

As seen on its official website, the Dongguan municipal government is now accepting bids to build a trolley system.

According to a source with the city planning department, a ”flexible” preliminary study has already been done with initial proposals on where the electric trolley lines will lead. Likely to consist of one or two lines and based on the electric trolley systems in Shenzhen and Hong Kong, this heavy-transit system will likely be built in the city center or by the waterfront. As the source with the Dongguan city planning department explains:
 
Building the tram tracks downtown can help alleviate pressure on traffic, while tracks near the waterfront won’t be as difficult to build since the new territory is spacious.

The source cautioned that preliminary studies for trolleys in other cities like Guangzhou and Shenzhen have taken two years to finish, whereas Dongguan only began its study in January of this year.

During the second stage of the study, the city planning department will solicit advice from officials and experts.
