City Buys Second Waterfront Trolley

Some more great news from Hamilton's waterfront: the hugely successful waterfront trolley will be joined by a second bus this year to handle the demand.

Not mentioned in this piece is the fact that the city is also buying two vintage trolleys that will operate through the summer from downtown to the waterfront.

Two of these low-floor models will make the constant trip between the core and harbourfront:

It should be another fun summer along the waterfront.

Hamilton's Waterfront Trolly is a service all Hamilton residents can enjoy and support, even the disabled ones, its wheelchair accessible, of course.

The history lesson about the Harbor that comes with the ride is an added bonus for the children.

Here's a link to a Google video of my disabled boy Logan taking a ride, he had the time of his life riding the "Big Red Snail".
