Columbia, PA – The Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center and Columbia Borough announce a collaborative effort that will bring a trolley to the historic area of Columbia.  This service debuted with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, May 25, at 6:30 pm.

A trolley service in downtown Columbia has long been imagined. The concept was included in Columbia’s Economic Development Strategic Plan and now comes to fruition. A trolley provided through a contract with Rivertowne Trolley Company will follow a loop that includes 10 stops at various attractions in Columbia.  For a small fee riders may enjoy this hop on, hop off trolley service on Thursdays through Sundays beginning May 26 and ending September 4.  This restored Victorian trolley with mahogany appointments will run from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm on those scheduled days. Volunteers will add to the experience by narrating the route.

Guests who wish to use this service are encouraged to park free of charge at the Columbia Municipal Parking Lot at Front & Locust Streets.  For more information, visit the SVCC website www.PaRivertowns.com  or call 717-684-5249.
