The Metro Tram can be used with a power car that seats 18 passengers, or up to three trailers can be added, seating 28 passengers each for a total of 102 passengers.

This unit can be built with the popular open air design that allows each row a rapid on/off loading time, and is also available in a totally enclosed model that allows passengers to enjoy the attractions without having to endure harsh environments.

Popular features include self-leveling suspension, wheelchair accessibility, hydrostatic drive system, fiberglass seats, articulated steering, Cummins engine and a unique, sleek body style. Air conditioning is also available. Engine options include LPG, CNG, gas and diesel.

This unit is designed for parking lot shuttles, tours, on-property shuttles, employee shuttles, zoos, theme parks, fairs and large attractions. The build time for this unit is 4-5 months from time of order.
