The Villager

The Villager

Overview
Villager

The Villager is our original trolley design, which was introduced over 34 years ago. From private tour operators to fixed routes in downtown areas, the Villager is sure to bring classic style to any location. The Villager can be produced with elegant vintage features such as spiral brass, mahogany, and leather grab straps, or finished with mass transit features to create a more durable trolley for the workload of intercity fixed routes.   The Villager is also available in bio-diesel, series hybrid electric, LPG and CNG alternative fuels.
