City of Miami Beach Starts Operating 14 New Specialty Vehicles Trolleys

 

January 2017 – Miami, FL – Limousines of South Florida has taken delivery of fourteen (14) new Specialty Vehicles trolleys on behalf of the City of Miami Beach. Limousines of South Florida is the owner and operator of these units for a contract with the City of Miami Beach.

These trolleys will be used to extend the Collins Link, a portion of the trolley service that includes Collins Avenue, Indian Creek Drive, Indian Beach Park, Beach View Park, Allison Park, Brandshell Park and North Shore Park.

“Today obviously we’re excited to announce what we call the Collins Link, which will accompany our fleet of trolleys and bridge the connection, literally, our trolley services now will run from 5th Street to as far north as 88th Street,” said Jimmy L. Morales, City Manager for the City of Miami Beach, at the ribbon cutting for the new vehicles in November.

The new trolleys are 30’ front engine vehicles built on MB65 Freightliner chassis and feature a Cummins engine and Allison transmission. The front and rear air suspension features a fast fill kneeling system for a lower first step height at the entry door for easier loading and unloading. These trolleys also come ADA equipped with a W/C lift and a bike rack mounted to the cow catcher.

These trolleys operate Monday to Saturday, 6AM to midnight and on Sundays from 8AM to midnight. They are free to ride.
