The Connecticut Trolley Museum (CTM) will hold a ceremony to dedicate their first ever Mobile Wheelchair Lift on Thursday, June 29th at 10:30am.
The lift will allow the Museum to offer access to their operating trolleys for visitors with mobility issues. The Wheelchair Lift will be used for visitors in wheelchairs or visitors who have a challenging time stepping up into the trolley.
The mobile wheelchair lift was custom made for the Museum by Adaptive Engineering, Inc. whose list of customers include Amtrack; New Jersey Transit; the MBTA (Mass.); and numerous historic rail operators including the Strasburg Railroad, Napa Valley Wine Tours, Rocky Mountain Rail Tours and the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum.
The mobile wheelchair lift was funded with the support of the Cigna Foundation and by two Donor Advised funds at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving – The Vernon and Edith Roosa Family Foundation and Anonymous Fund No. 38.
According to the Museum’s Executive Director Gina Maria Alimberti, “We are excited to be able to provide this new service which is one of the many improvements and activities at the Museum that we have been undertaking to better serve our current visitors and to attract many more new ones.
