Inexpensive and enjoyable ride from the park to downtown and back. Old trolley car restored beautifully. A nice ride on a good day. Not incredibly exciting for teens, but the little kids really get a kick out of it.

The price is right, and kids some it. It goes down the middle of Mountain Ave for several blocks. The conductors and engineers make the trip memorable. Highly recommend.

My 80 year old parents were visiting and wanted to take a ride on the trolley. It is only open to the public on weekends. We sat at the bus stop across from the Catholic Church with lots of families with small children. The wait time between the trolley's is 30 minutes. We waited for two trolleys and could not... More

The Fort Collins trolley is a wonderful way to experience the charm of Mountain Avenue. The trolley has significant historical value and an asset to historical Fort Collins. The trolley is great fun for kids and adults. My kids enjoy riding the trolley several times each summer.

Where else can you get a ride and history tour for $2? The guides are very friendly and the ride is comfortable and fun. Kids seem to love the ride, helping to switch the seats for the ride back. Definately worth it

Super short and sweet. It'll bring you back in time. Mountain Ave is so beautiful to look at through the open windows. Catch this at City park and then get a return ticket when you get off at Howes and explore Old Town. Bring in your ticket to Kilwins for buy one get one free!

Check to find out when available. I took my grand kids and it was enjoyable. The Railway goes through the Oldest Part of town. It makes a nice family outing.

We lve to go down and ride the street car down West Mountain Avenue. The fares are reasonable. By buying your ticket and also any souvenirs, if the small gift shop in City Park is open, you are helping the society raise funds to restore a second Fort Collins street car. They are both Burney Safety Cars. Fascinating history. Usually... More
