This is a single restored trolley car than runs a couple of miles from a park to old town. The round trip takes about 30 minutes, and transfers are available so you can spend time at either end of the route. It is a fun ride with information on local history given by the motorman and the conductor, who are... More

I just wish it went further and there were more. It's cheap and fun to ride between downtown and city park. The guys that volunteer are super friendly and love to talk about it and show kids whatever they're curious about. It's a fun thing to do while spending time downtown.

In the nineteen teens Fort Collins was served by a network of trolleys. There are few pieces of track still embedded in roads. A single short line has been restored down Mountain Avenue from City Park to the edge of the Downtown.

If you're visiting or a long time resident, you must ride the trolley. Kids love it and it's just plain fun.

An old timey trolly type rail car takes you to old town Ft Collins. A fun ride for old and young alike. The volunteers do a great job and can answer almost any question you ask. A great way to not have to find parking downtown.

We saw municipal railway located on the map and thought it was unique. Followed the tracks and found the trolley getting ready to leave. Glad they'd rescued it and had it running again.

An all volunteer group, what a great job. Very professional and knowledgable. Certainly worth the fare and nice t-shirt souvenir

A short ride down Mountain Avenue on the Fort Colins trolley is always a fun thing to do. I often take my visitors on this trip. There is the option of getting off in Old Town and returning later. The price is right and the volunteers who work on the trolley are fun to talk to!
