Ron Kurth’s 26 passenger, air conditioned, limousine style, trolley bus is available for comfortable trips. Owner Ron Kurth, of Elgin, was sure a trolley bus would be a fun way to accommodate the area for weddings, wine tours, parties, beautiful site seeing tours and more.
Ron was owner of Kurth Bus Service in Elgin and Plainview for 32 years. His school buses served the school children of that area and transported about 1,000 children daily. Ron knew the bus business inside and out.
Being no stranger to safe transportation Ron just couldn’t get buses out of his head. Last summer, after observing a trolley bus on Elgin’s Main Street, as light came on. He came up with an idea that wasn’t already furnished in the area, a comfortable trolley bus.
He looked on eBay and placed an incredibility low offer on a trolley bus in Pennsylvania. After flying out and inspecting it, he had it hauled back home. The trolley, on a school bus chassis, was reconstructed at Jim’s Truck and trailer in Winona. Shea Design, of Viola, did the striking graphics. My May it was ready to roll.
Ron is hoping to offer comfortable service within 50 mile radius of Elgin. He requires a 3 hour minimum reservation but gives reduced rates after 3 hours. Transportation includes unlimited miles, pick ups and drop offs. The trolley has built-in ice coolers for beverages, cup holders and a wine rack. There is a state-of-the-art sound system, microphone and 2 CD monitors. Passengers can plug in their smart phone so their own music is available to them. The padded, leather, interior seats face the center aisle to accommodate conversations. Trips are smoke free.
The name, Wapasha Trolley Company, was chosen because Ron wanted to relate to the area. He did some research and couldn’t overlook the name of 7 Chief Wapashas who helped white settlers farm in the beautiful, scenic, fertile area.
