As a Trolley Guide you will work on board the Trolley as a host, driver and tour guide. You will be responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the riders on the trolley tours.

Trolley Guides are well-versed in Canadian history, general vehicle maintenance knowledge, and will develop their abilities for story-telling/public speaking.
