R. F. Pettigrew started Sioux Falls’ first horse-drawn streetcar line in 1887, and the last streetcar graced the streets in 1929, until 2001, when the current Sioux Falls Trolley was unveiled. It’s the best way to get around downtown and provides a unique experience for the whole family to enjoy.
The trolley makes a loop from Falls Park, down Main Avenue to 13th Street, down Phillips Avenue to the 8th & Railroad Center where it turns around and returns to Falls Park via Phillips Avenue. Riding the trolley is just $2 per day per person with kids 12 and under free, and riders can hop on or off at any of the trolley stops, including Sioux Falls destinations like the Washington Pavilion, City Hall, the Carnegie Building, the Orpheum Theater, and many more.
Stellar Limousine drivers provide a hop-on/hop-off historic tour along the trolley route as part of the experience.
Fall/Winter Schedule (September 1, 2018 – December 30, 2018):
- Saturdays 10 AM until 7 PM (excluding Saturday, September 8th, 2018)
- Sundays 11 AM until 5 PM.
The cost to ride is just $2 with kids 12 and under riding for free. Trolley vehicles are also ADA accessible. Trolley stops are located throughout the downtown route and pickups occur every 25-30 minutes with the last pickup a half hour before closing time.
