MTS announces expansion of vintage trolley operation days

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 1940s vintage trolley car that carries riders around downtown on weekends will start operating on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning next week, the Metropolitan Transit System announced Thursday.

The weekday hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with departures on the hour and half-hour from the America Plaza station.

The downtown loop ride on the 50-passenger car takes 25 minutes and costs $2, according to the MTS.

According to agency officials, the trolley car was discovered dumped near South Lake Tahoe, and volunteers worked for six years to restore it. The car was put into operation on weekends beginning in August.

Money to pay for the restoration came from donations.
