The behind-the-scenes Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood is a staple of anyone’s visit, taking guests on a guided tour around real movie and television sets. The attraction includes iconic productions from the 20th and 21st centuries such as Jaws, War of the Worlds and Psycho and to name just a few.
In line with NBCUniversal and Comcast’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2035, it has recently been announced that a rollout of electric trams has now begun, with 4 of the 21 vehicles having been converted from the previous diesel engines.
These vehicles are the largest battery-powered, off-road and low-speed mass people movers in the US. They’ll not only help to reduce carbon emissions at the resort, but they also have reduced noise compared to their diesel counterparts, helping to improve guest experience as well!
Speaking about the rollout of the electric trams, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Universal Studios Hollywood, Scott Strobl said “I am extremely proud of this innovative undertaking and our commitment to creating a zero-emissions Studio Tour fleet. This is just one of the many steps we are taking to transform our business… all while pioneering first-class attractions for our guests.”
The trams, which have been developed in collaboration with LA-based company Complete Coach Works, will routinely charge at the beginning and end of the tour route, as well as when they are travelling downhill, meaning there will be no disruption for guests during the experience.
The ultimate goal is for all 21 vehicles in the Studio Tour fleet to be electric, and we can’t wait to see the rollout continue!
There’s so much to explore at Universal Studios Hollywood, including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic World - The Ride, and of course, the world-famous Studio Tour, all included in the cost of your tickets. Discover our ticket offers below and book yours today!
