Popular cable cars take visitors, residents
on relaxing ride through City
RAPID CITY-- The summer season is quickly winding down and with it, the end of the City trolley season.
The last day to take a ride on the City View Trolley is Saturday, August 31. The trolleys take visitors and residents on a relaxing tour of the City's most iconic points of interest. Operated by Rapid Transit System, the City View Trolley began its 13th year of operation June 1.
The Trolleys, known by their green and red turn-of-the-last-century cable car appearance, provide a narrated tour throughout Rapid City with 15 stops, including visits to popular attractions like the Journey Museum, Storybook Island, Dinosaur Park, Stavkirke Chapel in the Hills, Founders Park, Sioux Park Formal Gardens, Main Street Square, the Berlin Wall in Memorial Park, Canyon Lake Park, and the Dahl Fine Arts Center.
The City View Trolley became a part of the Rapid Transit System in 2007 and operates daily except Sundays and Independence Day, from June 1-August 31 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The trolleys begin and end at the Milo Barber Transportation Center, 333 Sixth Street, but riders can board at any of the stops along the tour route. Fares range from $2 for adults to $1 for children 12 and under, and $1 for "honored citizens": riders 60 and older, disabled citizens and Medicare card holders.
