Local Trolley Service in Minneapolis-St. Paul

Posted on September 29, 2017 by Chad
Minneapolis Trolley

Twin Cities Trolley

Twin Cities – Replicas of the San Francisco cable cars that were first built in the 1870’s, RRV’s version of the trolley has had custom upgrades and amenities added to the classic favorite to create a fun, comfortable, and elegant experience for your next event.

First of all, there are no cables! Each Trolley is a stand-alone 22-30 passenger vehicle capable of taking
you anywhere for any occasion. Tour the River Valley’s in style for a wine tasting or visit your local pubs
with a few dozen of your friends or use a trolley if your wedding party is just too big to fit into a
standard limousine, but too formal for a bus. Or if you just want to make a stylish entrance.

The Trolley is a fun way to accent any evening with more than a little bit of classical style.
An enduring symbol of old world charm the original trolleys were first opened to the public in

1873 to fill the need for a safe efficient form of transportation. Set in bustling cityscape with a booming population the trolley became not just another mode of transportation but a staple of daily life for the City goers of San Francisco as much a part of the city as the destinations it carried its customers to. At one point 23 lines were created between 1873 and 1890. Due to the rise of the electric car, buses, and the
automobile by 1944 they were reduced to 2 single lines as a memento of an error predating the
automobile. To this day the remaining San Francisco trolleys are a symbol of civic ingenuity and public
minded integrity, a form of transportation that transcends mundanity and harkens back to a bygone
aesthetic. They are considered national treasures and are one of only two mobile national monuments
in the country.

Providing the authentic styling of a San Francisco trolley with all of the modern accoutrements Renee’s
Royal Valet has is offering the closest and the next best thing to traveling all the way to San Francisco.
Each trolley constructed with impeccable detail and is fitted with full climate control, authentic brass
railings and bells, a new stereo system with iPod adaptor, and a PA system, as well as your very own
“conductor” to use it.

To reserve a trolley in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for your next special event you are just a few clicks

Minneapolis Trolleys are Perfect Rides for Twin Cities St. Patrick’s Day Events

Posted on March 15, 2017 by Chad
Minneapolis Trolley Service

Minneapolis Trolleys are Green, Perfect Style for St. Patrick’s Day Events in the Twin Cities.

MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL — It’s that time of the year when green is in fashion and everyone is Irish no matter their ethnic or national origins: St Patrick’s Day is around the corner! Ironically, we have a number of green trolleys, which are an excellent option for safe, reliable, fun and festive transportation for any number of the local =Twin Cities St. Paddy’s Day parades or other events.

The Perfect Party on Wheels

Have you ever seen one of the street cars that travel throughout San Francisco? These old time railway cars are still in use in their city. The old “cable cars” as they were called back in the day, were more like trains and were powered by electric cable. Our version of the classic street car obviously doesn’t run on electric cables (and what for when we have the light rail, right?), but are drive train powered. We have several street car trolleys in our Minneapolis fleet. They make for a great party on wheels at events in the Twin Cities because they provide for such an open yet intimate environment conducive to social activity.

The Perfect Sober Cab Event Transportation

RRV has been providing local residents in the area with safe and reliable transportation for many years, since the early 1990s to be precise. In addition to our limousines, coaches (coach buses) and limo coaches, we also have the retro trolley fleet. We just love pulling these machines out of the garage. They are so fun and interesting. They are well known among locals as well. If you plan on drinking and having a good time for St. Patrick’s Day in the Minneapolis or St. Paul metro area, you should plan to have a designated driver or sober cab. The trolleys are a great way to get from one place to another without driving and risking death, injury and jail time.

Event Organizers and Transportation Coordinators

Are you involved in the event planning or transportation planning process for a local St. Paddy’s Day parade or other type of event in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area? We are an established top rated transportation provider in the Twin Cities with more than two decades of experience. We stress quality, safety and experience. If you are looking for event transportation and need to coordinate the planning of event travel on premises, off premises or to/from premises, please talk to the staff at RRV to see what kind of arrangements we can customize to accommodate your specific needs for St. Patrick’s Day in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. Read more below about our company to see what we are the best choice for event transportation in the region.

Minneapolis City Tour

The Twin Cities, which encompasses the greater Minneapolis and St. Paul metropolitan area, is home to around 4 million residents who live in a geographic area that stretches into Western Wisconsin (Hudson, WI is one of the most easterly lying suburbs of the metro area). This includes hundreds of suburbs, some as small as 69 people and some as large as 85,000 (like Bloomington). Your city tour can be customized by contacting and consulting with us on a coordinated travel plan in the Twin Cities.

Mall of America

Since we already mentioned Bloomington, a shopping stop might be the famous Mall of America, one of the largest shopping centers in the United States and it is right next door to a large IKEA outlet as well.

Brewery Tours

Minnesota is home to a diverse and growing list of micro- and craft breweries and “brewpubs” that are spread throughout the Twin Cities. Our website contains a list of these special Minnesota-based craft beer breweries, which are great attractions. They are also a lot of fun, as well as educational. Learn how beer is made!

US Bank Stadium, First Avenue and Target Field/Center

Target Center and Target Field (where the Minnesota Twins professional baseball franchise and Minnesota Timberwolves pro basketball team play) are located right across the street from the historic music venue First Avenue, where Prince once played. Big news right now (at least according to rumor) is that Paisely Park may become a tourist destination and possible museum for fans of Prince’s music. US Bank is the new super technologized stadium where the Minnesota Vikings play. It’s great to be state that has all four major sports teams, plus a growing soccer league. useu

Walker Art Center and Museums

The Walker Art Center is a great place to see art. Also, the twin cities is home to the most live theaters per capita of any city besides NYC. There is a lot of art and culture here to explore. Beyond the great restaurants and awesome people, there are history museums and other arts museums and centers, including the science museum.

University of Minnesota

Check out the U of M campus, one of the largest colleges in the nation (in the top 3) while you’re in town. It’s an amazing campus with its own set of attractions and neighborhoods.
