Popular cable cars take visitors, residents on relaxing ride through City;
Seasonal rides begin Friday
RAPID CITY-- A relaxing tour of the City's most iconic points of interest is just a hop away. Visitors and residents alike can get a unique view of the City with a ride on the City View Trolley.
The City View Trolley, operated by Rapid Transit System, begins its 12th year of operation Friday.
"The Trolley is a popular and convenient option for visitors to Rapid City and residents as well," said Rich Sagen, Rapid Transit System Manager. "There are stops at the City's most notable and recognized attractions and it's a great way to take a relaxing ride through the City."
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, 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 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.
