Short North Trolley Co.

Short North Trolley Co. is encouraging you to take the long route home. Founded by Jeff Shugarts, Tom O’Brien, and Jon Lorenz, Short North Trolley Co. offers trolley rides for special events including weddings, corporate events, and private events as well as pub crawls throughout the city.

Lorenz says the trio launched the Short North Trolley Co. because of their desire to connect people to each other as well as the city. That’s why they offer city tours alongside their pub crawls, patio hops, and private event bookings, and aim to make each and every ride as fun as possible for guests.

“We want to create an experience for guests,” says Lorenz. “We see this as a way to connect people to local businesses, to show people businesses they may not otherwise know.”

There are two trolleys at Short North Trolley Co. – affectionally known as Woody and Jimmy T. The trolleys were revamped when the business opened in 2018 and seat 26 people.

Currently, there are four pub crawls offered through Short North Trolley Co. including the Brewery & City Tour, the Patio Hop & City Tour, the Trolley Crawl & City Tour, and the Trolley Brunch & City Tour. All of the tours take you throughout the city as you get brunch, visit breweries, or stop by local hotspots.
