Downtown Trolley Service Resumes for Spring 2016

Downtown Trolley Service Resumes for Spring 2016

 

Salisbury - The City of Salisbury, Shore Transit, and Salisbury University are pleased to announce the return of the Downtown Trolley for the spring season of 2016! This service is available to Salisbury University students and community members for only $1 per boarding, and connects Salisbury University and surrounding areas with Downtown Salisbury.

 

After a brief hiatus for winter break, the Trolley has resumed service with a new stop! Starting its loop in front of the Perdue School of Business, the Downtown Trolley will run Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 p.m. until a little after 2:00 a.m. Fare will remain $1 per boarding.  A new stop has been added on South Boulevard, between Register and Hanson Streets.

 

The Downtown Trolley will also commence service at earlier hours each 1st Saturday and 3rd Friday! Look for service to run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. during these events, and then pick up again at 9:00 p.m. and run until 2:00 a.m.!

 

This exciting project is part of the efforts to link Salisbury University students with the businesses Downtown.  Advertising opportunities are available on the Downtown Trolley via Direct Media USA.  They can be reached at 443-275-1770.

How much taxpayer money does this waste on an annual basis?

1:30 Not enough. This is a much needed expense. The trolley is such a wonderful addition for the downtown area. I wish they would spend more and have a performing artist on board at all times. Maybe a face painter, musician, character artists. Such a treat.

whats wrong with a trolley just because most of you on here are scared of your own shadow a lot us like to get out and about

I like to get out and about, too, but I don't expect taxpayers to pay the majority of my travel expenses.

Shore Transit is eating some of the cost to run the Trolley. Tax Payers are only paying what the City of Salisbury has set aside to "help" run the Trolley and a Driver. How ever last yr it did cost more to run than what Salisbury paid to Shore Transit. 1.00 per board is very cheap. I hope the Students use it and visit 1st Saturdays and 3rd Fridays as well. It helps the local crafters too. I also want to add that I hope the College Kids behave themselves when out and about.

"such a treat" You need to get off the shore. If this is what you call a treat, you are not living. You are just existing. Oh how I pity you. No wonder Salisbury is on life support. The mindset is so lacking in culture and is so backward moving.

Patti, who pays for Shore Transit? The tax payers. No matter how you look at it, this endeavor is financed exclusively by the tax payers for the benefit of like 1/10th of the population. It's a bad investment all around.

Shore Transit gets most of its operating money from the taxpayers,too.
