 Ride Greenfield Village®  

Horse Drawn Omnibus Shuttle

Sit back and let Greenfield Village’s team of horses shuttle you to various locations in the Village.

Omnibuses were the first great public conveyances in American cities. Dating back to 1831, these preliminary forms of public transportation made getting around relatively quick and convenient. Invented later, iron wheels on iron rails made these shuttles more comfortable and efficient.

See history from the comfort of our horse-drawn omnibus. Ride ticket required. 


Train Ride

Ride the rails. 

 Ride Greenfield Village®  

Train Ride

See history from a seat on our historic railroad. The train passes through Greenfield Village, granting the passenger a tour of the beautiful landscape and buildings of the historic town.

Additional capacity has been added to each train to allow more guests to ride the rails safely.
