Red Car Trolley in California Adventure can be found on Buena Vista Street. The two trolley cars are based on the Pacific Electri Railway trolleys that navigated the streets of Los Angeles from 1887 until 1961. Authentic to the time period, they feature advertising from the 1920’s inside the trolley. It runs on battery and the overhead wires are just for show.
Each trolley can accommodate 20 guests and the trip is one-way.You must get off at the stop. There are 4 stops along Buena Vista Street with the final stop being by Tower of Terror and the entrance to Bug’s Land. If that is your ultimate goal, the Red Car Trolley is a great way to get there. I wouldn’t use it as a means of transportation in the morning, but in the afternoon it would be a refreshing experience. Cars run approximately every 8 minute and reach a whopping 4 miles per hour on their journey.
