About Our Field Trip:
North Texas Renewable Energy Group members, friends, and supporters are being given a rare opportunty to see first-hand a different type of electric vehicle - the electric trolly. The "M-Line", so named for the original McKinney Avenue route of the original trollys, is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and use of vintage electric trolly cars. The M-Line is in use by the public as a mode of transportation in Dallas 365 days a year.
Presenter: McKinney Avenue Transit Authority
About the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority
Founded in 1983, the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority (a non-profit organization) began operating vintage trolly cars on Dallas streets in 1989. Trollys operate 365 days a year, providing public transportation in uptown Dallas.
The M-Line has five, fully-restored vintage trolly cars in their inventory. The oldest car was built in 1909. Ranging in size from 28 feet long to 49 feet long, the trollys can carry from 25 to 50 passengers.
