How do I figure out how many trolleys I would need and for how long?
Coordinating transportation for a group of any size can seem overwhelming at first - but we’re here to help! At Molly’s Trolleys Pittsburgh, we work with you one-on-one to review all of the details of your event, from the anticipated guest count, to the pick-up and drop-off locations, to your event’s hour-by-hour schedule, and together we determine a plan for your transportation needs.
Our expert team knows the ins and outs of Pittsburgh and stays up-to-date on current events and potential road closures in order to provide you with convenient and reliable shuttle service.
Can we bring food and drinks on the trolley?

How do I reach someone on the day of my event if I have any questions?
Communication and organization are essential to a successful event. Another great feature of using Molly’s Trolleys is our Driver Cell Phone Sheets. The week before your event, we review all details of the event with you - from locations and who our contact is, to how many people to expect and timing, to end of night procedures. We then organize all of this information onto one document called the Driver Cell Phone Sheet. Also included on the Driver Cell Phone Sheet are your driver’s name and a cell phone number that will be activated approximately 1 hour before the start of your event.
You will also receive emergency contact information for Molly's Trolleys including a direct phone number to the office staff that can be used when the offices are closed or if you are unable to reach your driver.
