Trolley Costs

Q: How much does it cost to run the trolley for special events?

A: $25 per hour. That pays for fuel, the driver’s salary, and helps pay for the overall maintenance of the trolley, city manager Jim O’Reilly says. The trolley runs four hours during art walks; on the 4th of July, the city has the trolley running for between 10 – 12 hours.
