In 2015 the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) acquired a refurbished 1991 Chance trolley from Tecumseh, Michigan for the purpose of using it for community functions, community events and events for nonprofit organizations.

Shuttle service to and from area hotels during events at the Veterans Memorial Civic & Convention Center, the Allen County Fairgrounds and other event facilities may be provided. The Trolley is utilized in annual community events such as the Lima Lantern Tours in October and the 4th of July Celebration, Lima’s Star Spangled Spectacular.

For information on renting the trolley or its participation in community events contact: Lima/Allen County Reginal Transit Authority at 419-222-2782 or visit
