WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A tour business in Raleigh is trying to bring their mobile machine to Downtown Wilmington.
The Trolley Pub is a 14 person open air cart that uses the riders as the power. 12 seats have bicycle pedals and a bench seats two more. In NC right now, the business only has a location in Raleigh, though a similar operation exists in the Charlotte area.
Alcohol is allowed on a bring your own beverage concept as the actual person behind the steering wheel is employed by Trolley Pub, acting as a chaperone. It follows rules similar to that of a limousine.
Co-owner Kai Caapro says it’s great for tourism and that they have been trying to get approval for the past year. The company brought one of their Trolleys to Wilmington Thursday to show City Leaders exactly what they have to offer.
