The Škoda 15Tr is a high floor articulated trolleybus built from 1988 to 2004 at the plant in Ostrov nad Ohří, in the Czech Republic. In 1995 the design was updated and featured redesigned end caps and digital route displays. These buses became known as the 15 TrMs. The 15Tr uses the same mechanical parts as the Škoda 14Tr which is very convenient for maintenance.

The 15Tr was the first Czech articulated trolleybus. It has two traction motors, one on the middle axle and another on the rear, giving them an advantage when operating in hilly terrain. They are fitted with 4 doors, 2 in the forward section and 2 in the rear. The initial 15 Trs had two piece windshields, while the 15 TrMs received one piece glass. Škoda's trolleybuses were first supplied exclusively in red and cream paint, which was standard for all transport companies in Czechoslovakia.

Between 1983 and 2004 around 600 trolleybuses were produced (including versions Škoda 15TrM and Škoda 15TrSF).
