Tips for Riding the Trolley August 1st – 2nd

The addition of the Downtown Night Trolley as a trial run for the first weekend in August is an exciting step in the right direction in increasing transportation alternatives in our urban core and providing connectivity between Riverside Avondale, Brooklyn and Downtown.

What you need to know:

? SEPARATE SYSTEM — The Downtown Trolley and the Riverside Avondale Trolley are two completely separate loops that connect with specific transfer stops on Margaret Street. Separate Route, Separate Schedule, Separate Fare.
? STAR Cards – the easiest and most economical way to ride the trolley is to get a day pass in advance at these retailers. JTA’s day pass permits unlimited on and off privileges all night and transfers between Downtown and Riverside Avondale Trolleys.
? PAY PER RIDE – Bring exact change! The trolley takes ones and quarters and each ride is $1.50. You will not be able to transfer between the Riverside Avondale and Downtown Trolleys without paying an additional fare, unless you have a STAR Card.
? TRACK THE TROLLEY — Use the website to track the trolleys with GPS and also to double check that you are getting on the correct trolley for your destination (Downtown or Riverside Avondale)
? TRANSFER SITES — Look for Yard Signs that designate Downtown Trolley Transfer Sites.
? WATCH THE TIME — Although the trolley is advertised as running until 2:00 am, you should plan to catch the closest trolley to you after 1:00 am in order to get home as there is only one trolley in circulation after midnight for each route.
