Havana Seeking Trolley for Tourism

Havana, IL – Chamber of Commerce leaders in Havana are looking for a gas-powered, rubber-tired trolley to help with tourism. Terry Svob says the group would use it in conjunction with major festivals such as Eagle Days or Octoberfest. He says it could also be used as weekly public transportation to help people who are usually homebound. Svob says another use would be when Illinois River cruise boats stop at the town. It could take passengers around the town to shop or dine. Svob says a broker is looking for an appropriate vehicle.
