Galveston May Expand Trolley Bus System


(Galveston, TX)  --  Galveston could expand its small fleet of bus trolleys.  The city rolled out the first three of the buses, designed to look like trolleys, last summer.  

They provided free rides to the Seawall, the Strand, and Moody Gardens.  In September, the city started charging a dollar a ride for adults, with accompanying kids riding for free.  

Even after the city began charging for the service, the trolleys attracted more than 56-thousand riders over the next six months.  The city now owns five of the buses and is thinking of raising revenue by placing ads in them.
