Rome ATAC Route 90 has a dedicated fleet of Solaris Trollino buses. However, there is no catenary between Stazione Termini and the intersection of Via Nomentana and Via Messina, just to the east of Porta Pia. As a result, buses operate on battery power from Termini to the point where the catenary begins, at which point the buses stop under the wires, the bus's pantographs are raised, and the bus continues the rest of the way to Largo Labia using overhead power. This video shows a bus changing from battery power to electric power.
