Trolleys again rumbling through St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Trolleys are again carrying passengers in St. Louis’ Loop area and University City.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports two refurbished trolleys began runs Friday through St. Louis’ famous strip of shops and restaurants.
The $51 million line runs for 2.2 miles between the western end of the Delmar Loop in University City and the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.
The line was first envisioned in 1997 but supporters had to navigate a number of problems. The line opened last week but only operated on part of the St. Louis segment until a bond agreement could be reached with University City.
The trolley’s two cars will run from noon to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 8 p.m. Sundays.
