In Memoriam

Jack was a well-known and highly respected real estate broker who lived in Indiana his entire life. In 2012, he visited San Francisco and fell in love with their classic streetcars. Jack decided that Indianapolis should also have high quality, nostalgic trolley cars, and Indy Trolley was born.


Jack made sure his trolleys were in great condition and had the authentic feel he was looking for, but he also added major safety upgrades. Our trolleys are equipped with fog lights, strobe lights, backup cameras, traffic alert equipment, GPS tracking for enhanced vehicle safety, and ADA handicap options.


People love the fun and nostalgic experience of booking a trolley for their special occasions: weddings, proms, holiday light tours, nights out on the town, and brewery tours. Trolleys just make everything more enjoyable, and we are so glad Jack brought them to Indianapolis and central Indiana.


Jack passed away in 2018, and he is greatly missed by his family, friends, and business associates.

Ken Carter was the CEO of Indy Trolley. His journey from a skilled electrician to a successful entrepreneur is a testament to his unwavering entrepreneurial spirit. Alongside his sister and business partner Kristie Carter, he nurtured and grew Aadvanced Limousines over two decades, transforming it into more than just a company—it became a symbol of commitment, care, and community engagement.


In 2020, Ken and Kristie purchased Indy Trolley Renowned for his kindness, generosity, humor, and insatiable curiosity, Ken was a respected figure in his industry. As an advocate for the National Limousine Association, Ken contributed significantly to its Central Region Board. Ken’s willingness to offer support, advice, or a helping hand made him a cherished member of his professional community.


Ken’s legacy, however, extends far beyond his entrepreneurial achievements. He and Kristie imbued Aadvanced Limousines and Indy Trolley with a profound sense of social responsibility, making community service a fundamental aspect of their business model. The duo’s commitment to philanthropy was evident in their contributions to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Children’s Bureau, The Pat McAfee Foundation, and Wish For Our Heroes.


Ken “KJ” Carter lost his battle with COVID in December 2021. He was a man of immense heart, unwavering dedication, and true generosity. He is deeply missed but never forgotten.
