S.C. university adds 6 Specialty Vehicles trolleys

Posted on June 2, 2014

Specialty Vehicles recently delivered six Supreme Classic American Trolleys to Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina.

Coastal Carolina University had a formal roll out of their transportation system late last year and has since added routes both on and off campus to prioritize their students’ safety and access to affordable transportation. Two additional trolleys will be added to their fleet later this year.

“Traveling around campus as safe as possible is a priority for us, so whether they’re going to east campus, university place, main campus, we want to encourage them to use the shuttles so that they don’t walk in the streets and roadways so that they’ll be safe,” said Greg Weisner, CCU director, safety and transportation.

The six trolleys are replacing buses that were previously leased and officials are seeing more ridership on the trolley system than ever before. Students are also saving on fuel costs, driving their own cars less and riding the trolleys.

All Classic American Trolleys feature modern vehicle amenities with the familiar nostalgia and appearance of the classic trolley. Available in gasoline, diesel, liquefied petroleum gas and compressed natural gas, the trolleys are manufactured by Supreme Corp. in Goshen, Ind., with a passenger capacity from 22 to 39.

Altoona-tested and meeting all U.S. and Canadian Department of Transportation codes, these vehicles are designed to operate in various environments and feature climate control systems. Additional options such as handicap accessibility, removable sidewalls and a conductor’s platform are available.
