The Wilmington Trolley - Delaware's Iconic Public Transportation System
The Wilmington Trolley is a fairly new mode of transport that was introduced in Delaware's Rodney Square in December of 2002. The concept was jointly formulated by Mayor of Wilmington James M Baker and the director of Delaware Transit Corp Ray Miller. The objective was to come up with a transportation that offered modern conveniences and efficiency to passengers traveling along the Downtown Route 32. The attractive vehicle measuring 31 and 1/2 feet in length features wood grain paneling interspersed with attractive shades of blue and gold. The trolley has a seating capacity of 28 passengers with a standing space for at least 21 odd passengers, along with two designated wheelchair seats for the disabled. The Wilmington Trolley is not only comfortable and convenient; it is also very cost effective. For a nominal 25 cents per trip, commuters can now take advantage of a viable and efficient transport service that operates between Riverfront and Rodney Square. In its decade long run, the Wilmington Trolley has become one of the most vital transportation systems in the downtown inner-city area. Its novel concept has also attracted tourists and visitors from the across the country and beyond, who enjoy the experience of riding the Trolley. The acrylic fridge magnet portrays a nostalgic image of the Wilmington Trolley, making it the perfect souvenir to rekindle fond memories of your time spent in Delaware.
