RTA operates a fleet of four simulated streetcars, each bearing the name of a famous Daytonian; Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright, Katharine Wright and Paul Laurence Dunbar. These beautiful vehicles, appointed with mahogany and brass fixtures, are replicas of turn-of-the century streetcars that once traveled the streets of Dayton.

Add some nostalgia to your next event by chartering an RTA Wright Flyer. These unique vehicles are perfect for weddings, parties, tours, or just about any occasion.

Each vehicle seats 20 people with room for an additional 10 passengers standing.

The Wright Flyers are heated during the winter and have removable windows for summertime operation.
