ABQ Trolley Co. brings a much needed city tour service to Albuquerque. Countless metropolitan areas in the United States have some form of city tour while Albuquerque has not had this unique service in nearly a decade.

The trolley was designed to incorporate elements that are specific to Albuquerque. These include wrought-iron rails with intricate scrollwork; a stucco-texture paint treatment; custom mosaic tile art pieces; and open-air interior.

"Albuquerque can be proud that no other city in the world has a trolley like this. We offer a great introduction to our city from a vehicle that reflects Albuquerque's uniqueness," says Herron.
