Vice Mayor Haulman Welcomes the Area's Newest Form of Alternative Transportation

The official ribbon-cutting for the new Williamsburg Trolley occurred on Tuesday afternoon.  Representatives from the Williamsburg Area Transport Authority (WATA), James City County, and the City of Williamsburg touted this fun new form of alternative transportation.  Jodi Miller, assistant manager for Williamsburg and chair of the WATA Board of Directors, announced that in its first month of operation, the trolley shuttled 5,600 passengers.

The trolley runs in a continuous loop, connecting Merchant Square, High Street, the College of William & Mary, and New Town with service every 30 minutes, between the hours of 3:00 pm and 10:00 pm.  The fare is $0.50 for the full day, and students from middle school through college can ride free.
