It begins at the Milo Barber Transport Center and visitors can choose to ride the trolley all the way round or jump off and on at the fifteen stops at points of interest. The... More

This was value for money at $5. You can get on and off the trolley during the day and a very informative history of the town given by the driver.

My cousin who lives in Rapid City recommended we ride the Trolley. It was $2 for regular and $1 Senior. It is a easy way to get around plus getting on and off all day if needed. It's narrated so you learn a bit about the city too !

We tried to ride the Trolley last weekend in Rapid City. It didn't stop or even slow down and there wasn't a soul on board! The first time we tried to catch the Trolley we were by the Hotel Alex Johnson at the street intersection where the brochure indicated it would stop. The driver just kept her foot on the... More

Fun drive around to points of interest in Rapid City, you can get on and off at each stop and be picked up later. Cheap way to spend the day, I think the cost for a one day pass is now $2 but its been a while since I checked. I believe all the of stops/points of interest are free.

I took the trolly for a full day of exploring with my 9 yr daughter. We packed all of her favorite places from our town into one day trip! Storybook Island, Dinosaur Park, Canyon Lake park, the journey museum. But our favorite part was exploring the presidents tour downtown. Plus a good American history lesson for her. We ended at...

Modern, air-conditioned trolleys take you around town and up to Dinosaur Hill. We enjoyed the taped narration and thought it was a GREAT value. But my 85 yearl old Dad said he would have paid a little extra to have a padded bench!

Very economical way how to see Rapid City. The narration is done by a recording and sometimes is not "in line" with what your looking at but it was nice to sit and take in the views At $2 per adult, you cant go wrong!
