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. The trolley is beautifully restored and the short run down the town's most historic street is a nice... More

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!

Looking for a fun way to visit Old Town Fort Collins in the summer? Head to City Park and take the trolley down. This way you don't have to worry about parking in Old Town and you get the special experience of riding down Mountain Avenue on the trolley.

Over the years, members of the Fort Collins Municipal Railway Society have put in a huge effort to bring back a wonderful historic experience for the community and visitors. Birney Car 21 is beautifully restored, and Car 25 is also being reconditioned and brought back to its original colors. What a fabulous ride down the median of a beautiful street... More

The restored Fort Collins trolley is a cheap, fun way to ride down memory lane. My only complaint is that it only runs during the summer months.
