Parking Tips
For Your Comfort

  • Accessibility: Everyone boards our carriages from an elevated platform accessed via an inclined ramp. Deboarding occurs from a different elevated platform with three steps and a handrail to ground level.

  • Carriages: Our carriages are built for the comfort of our passengers with foam-padded leather seats with backrests and a rooftop to protect against intense sunshine or rain. There's plenty of legroom even for tall folks! 
Planning for the Weather
