Charters & Parties

Party on the Trolley

Come check us out! Our historic “party” trolley car #1602 is 104 years old this year and ready to host your special event. When you book a party, your group gets its very own trolley car for the ride and a uniformed tour guide-trolley operator. There’s room on the trolley for cake, ice cream or other food service and big windows for viewing the beautiful scenery. Included in the price is extra time before and after to set up and clean up, so everything will be just right. Our trolley cars are heated and we can accommodate parties and special events throughout the year. Plan to book at least three weeks in advance, dates fill up fast!

Did you know?

Our party car, #1602, was built in 1911 by the Wason Car Co. in Springfield, Mass.  It regularly operated in rush hour and late night service on the streets of New Haven, CT and surrounding towns with straight-line seating and plenty of room for “standee” passengers.  This original interior remains today, which means we can put tables down the middle of the car and still have plenty of room for 21st century passengers!
