Chillicothe Transit System Announces two-day Downtown Trolley Trial
A FREE trolley will circulate through Downtown Chillicothe on Thursday, July 22, from 10:30 AM to 6:30 PM and on Friday, July 23 from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The Chillicothe Transit System is considering new and innovative ways to better serve our community. One of the ideas is a Trolley that would circulate around our Historic Downtown and next Thursday and Friday we will be testing out the concept. A free trolley will run throughout Downtown on July 22 from 10:30 AM to 6:30 PM and on July 23 from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Everyone is invited to ride the trolley and provide feedback through a survey to guide the City’s thinking as it considers its permanent implementation.
To get on or off the trolley at any of these stops, riders can look for “Trolley Stop” signs. There is no fare to ride the trolley. Traffic flow in Downtown will not be affected. Pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists should still exercise caution around the trolley and its stops.
The City of Chillicothe is one of 11 cities nationwide to participate in the Bloomberg-Harvard Innovation Track as a part of its City Leadership Initiative. Since November of 2020 a team of City employees and representatives have learned to use human centered design processes to tackle the opportunity to make Chillicothe Transit the best rural transit system in America. The Trolley prototype is one of the outcomes of this process.
