VTA's Historic Trolley Returns for the Holidays!

 
Historic Trolley Route Map

 

VTA's Historic Trolley arrives just in time for the holidays! The Historic Trolley, Car 2001, was built in Milan, Italy in 1928 where it originally operated until the mid-1980s when it was donated by the Italian government to the San Jose Trolley Corporation. VTA's Car 2001 is one of six restored trolleys maintained by VTA.
 
The Trolley operates between the Civic Center and San Jose Diridon light rail stations, so whether your plan is to visit Christmas in the Park, ice skate under the palms or dine in downtown San Jose's many restaurants, the Trolley will get you there and...the ride is FREE! The nostalgic ride is sure to get you and your family into the spirit of the season!
