We are proud to show you our wonderful city on a completely-custom, uniquely-Albuquerque, open-air trolley. There is no other city in the country (or probably the world) that has a trolley like this. When we first started ABQ Trolley Co., we wanted to bring something to Albuquerque that would capture the essence of the City; we definitely did not want to use something ordinary like buses, shuttles or mini-coaches. Classic Trolley in Medford, Oregon, was chosen as the builder. Uniting with Classic Trolley, we designed a trolley that incorporates specific elements that are uniquely-Albuquerque. These include wrought-iron rails (as opposed to traditional brass); a stucco-texture paint treatment (as opposed to the red often seen on more-traditional trolleys); custom mosaic tile art pieces; and a completely open-air interior to allow for total enjoyment of Albuquerque's 310 days of sunshine!
