The Fort Collins trolley is a wonderful way to experience the charm of Mountain Avenue. The trolley has significant historical value and an asset to historical Fort Collins. The trolley is great fun for kids and adults. My kids enjoy riding the trolley several times each summer.

Where else can you get a ride and history tour for $2? The guides are very friendly and the ride is comfortable and fun. Kids seem to love the ride, helping to switch the seats for the ride back. Definately worth it

Super short and sweet. It'll bring you back in time. Mountain Ave is so beautiful to look at through the open windows. Catch this at City park and then get a return ticket when you get off at Howes and explore Old Town. Bring in your ticket to Kilwins for buy one get one free!

Check to find out when available. I took my grand kids and it was enjoyable. The Railway goes through the Oldest Part of town. It makes a nice family outing.

We lve to go down and ride the street car down West Mountain Avenue. The fares are reasonable. By buying your ticket and also any souvenirs, if the small gift shop in City Park is open, you are helping the society raise funds to restore a second Fort Collins street car. They are both Burney Safety Cars. Fascinating history. Usually... More

A beautifully restored Trolly that takes you from City Park to Downtown Fort Collins. As you board, you will hear the history of the trolly and travel down the tree lined street of Mountain Ave.Still operates on electric lines overhead!. Conductors are friendly and enjoy talking about their city. I live a block away and every year make sure I... More

My son is crazy about trains, so we were super excited when we found this trolley. It's about a 10-15 minute round trip ride on old and new rails embedded in the median. It's home is a great park if you want to let the kids play before or after. The cost is silly - it's only $2 for adults... More

Step back into the past of Ft. Collins with a ride on the trolley. You can park at City Park and take the trolley down picturesque Mountain Avenue to the entrance to Old Town. On your right will be to great eateries, Walrus Ice Cream and if you would rather enjoy great Mexican food, check out the Rio, ask to... More

Step back in time for a fun ride on the trolley that has served Fort Collins residents for many years. A great way to get to Old Town or a fun ride for the little ones in the family. Runs along a beautiful tree-lined street with a lot of interesting homes from the turn of the century.
