THE INTERURBAN TROLLEY PUTS FIRST OF SEVEN NEW TROLLEY BUSES INTO SERVICE- PUBLIC EVENT SCHEDULED

 

This past week, the first new, low-floor trolley buses joined the Interurban Trolley fleet. The new vehicles have an exterior look of a traditional trolley, with the wood paneling, cow catchers, arched windows, and a cupola. The new vehicles will enhance the rider's experience by also featuring a modern transit-style interior, including modern transit seating.

 

The first new trolley bus debut service began on Saturday, September 26, 2015.  MACOG plans to place the additional new trolleys on routes in the upcoming weeks.

 

A public event is planned to celebrate the arrival of the new trolley buses and for the public to “meet the trolley”. The event is scheduled to take place on Monday, October 5, 2015 at Concord Mall at 10:00am. In attendance will be the Mayors of Goshen and Elkhart, along with MACOG personnel.  They will provide information on the design of the buses along with the expected timeline for the other six new buses going into service.

 

Additional transit information can be obtained by calling the Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) at
