This is where it all started 30 years ago.  Classic Trolley's first model was the California Street Car - designed from the original plans for the cable cars that ran in San Francisco in the 1890's.  In fact, safely stowed in the archives we still have these old drawings.  Our current models have evolved a bit from our original designs, we've made them a little wider for customer comfort and safety.  Yet even today, our newest models still retain plenty of yesterday's charm and elegance.  

When you're looking for the ultimate in nostalgia, versatility, and increased ridership, look no further than the California Street. With an enclosed center section, this model offers the comforts of interior climate control coupled with the excitement of an open-air ride. The flexibility and timeless good looks of the California Street will keep riders on your tour throughout the year.  Seating capacity from 32  to 43 passengers depending on seating configuration.
