If you’re looking for a fun way to explore Elmhurst this summer without worrying about parking or hoofing it in the heat, the Elmhurst Trolley is back in action to help you out!
This is the fourth season for the trolley, which makes a 30-minute loop and runs on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to midnight.
Hop on and off to visit the museums, grab a bite to eat, take in a movie, or do some shopping. The trolley is free and you don’t even need a ticket.
There are six stops throughout town, connecting downtown Elmhurst with the Spring Road business district and the York and Vallette business district. Each stop is marked by an Explore Elmhurst sign and has nearby parking. The trolley is equipped with a GPS so riders can visit ExploreElmhurst.com and track the location.
As if that weren’t enough, the sounds of the Elmhurst College Jazz Band are piped in, and a historical narrative points out highlights of the city.
The trolley is in operation from June 1–September 15. It is handicapped accessible and ADA compliant. Collapsible strollers are welcome if they fit in the seating area, however onboard storage is unavailable and as such, no bikes are allowed.
The trolley stops at the following intersections:
Stop 1—York and Park
Stop 2—York and Schiller
Stop 3—Second and Addison
Stop 4—Cottage Hill and Virginia
Stop 5—Spring Road and the Illinois Prairie Path
Stop 6—York and Vallette
