  • Grab birthday bottles of wine for dinner at a BYOB restaurant and then jump on our trolley for a night out

The bars and restaurants you can visit to celebrate your birthday are endless. Dance, drink (our trolleys are BYOB), and go wherever you want onboard your own personal trolley! You can make as many stops as you like. Make it a birthday you won’t forget and book now!


  • Hop-Off-And-On Service: hop-off and hop-on at any destinations within the New York City metro area. You pick your own route. Bring your creative ideas. The driver will wait curbside until you return.

  • Capacity: 34 people each - perfect for a big group - and the front half of each trolley has perimeter seating that faces each other creating a more social atmosphere. You can also stand (and dance) in our trolleys as we have 9' ceilings. Check our interior photos on Our Trolleys page.

  • Available Year-Round: Our trolleys love all seasons and have air-conditioning for the summer months and heating in the winter.

  • Friendly, Professional Driver: Our drivers are the best. They are punctual, fun, and will chauffeur your party to wherever you like for your private event.

  • YOU are the DJ: You can play your own music on our sound system and it's seamless. All you need is a smartphone and a playlist. We’ll bring the cables.

“This trolley is a crowd-pleaser for even the most travelled and jaded crowds - EVERYONE loves dancing and singing and partying as you zoom through the streets. One of my guests said ‘I could have happily stayed on that trolley all night!’ They were very flexible and supportive as my party plans changed time after time and I really felt like they were my partners in making my night the most fun possible. Thanks NY Trolley!!”

“I needed 30th birthday ideas in NYC and didn’t want to do the same old birthday dinners in private rooms or go to just one bar. So I tried the trolley and it was my best milestone birthday celebration yet! Our adults party theme was 1920s and everyone dressed the part. We went to the best bars and lounges in NYC and the trolley just waited outside for us. The driver Allen made me feel special and greeted me with a ‘Happy Birthday!’ when I boarded. We were allowed to bring any food and drink onboard. The trolley was our party room on wheels. Now my friends and I have booked NY Trolley 3 more times since! It is hands down the best place to celebrate your birthday in NYC!”

“Amazing time for birthday activities in NYC!! We had so much fun cruising around New York City on the trolley my first time, that I had the idea to book it again for my girlfriend's surprise birthday gift where we cruised around to birthday party places in Brooklyn... and now she's my WIFE!! Thanks New York Trolley Co!!”
