The trolley car was the transport method of Buenos Aires for over 100 years and they were abruptly eliminated around 1963. Since 1980 at the hearth of the Caballito you could see some trolley cars around thanks to a non-profit asociation. This trolley car works every weekend and holidays, the trip is 2km around caballito neighbourhoods. The trolley cars were recovered and conserved by the members of the association of trolley cars.
