Enjoy your ride!
Ride an open trolley car along the scenic South Platte Greenway and see Denver from an open-air “Breezer”! Our Trolley operates past Confluence Park, REI, Downtown Aquarium, Children’s Museum and Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Our operators are very knowledgeable about the history of the area in which we operate and delight in relating some interesting facts which even some of the locals don’t know. Where can you go and what can you see and do on the Platte Valley Trolley™? Join us for an enjoyable ride back in time before the Interstate and jet planes, back to the time when Grandma was a girl being courted by Grandpa as they took a ride on a Breezer! As our Trolley is an open-air “Breezer”, weather is a factor and we may not operate should the weather be very unfavorable. If you would like to join the Denver Tramway Heritage Society, fill out and mail us a membership application. If you live in the Denver area and would like to learn to operate our Trolley, call the office, e-mail us, or contact our volunteer coordinator and we will set up a training day for you. It’s really fun and if you have never done this, you are missing a great opportunity.
This is a photo of the original Denver Tramways sightseeing car sitting in front of the famous Brown Place Hotel. The picture was taken about 1906 and was used on the cover of sheet music entitled “Seeing Denver”. The fare back then was $0.50 for a 2 hour – 25 mile trip. While we cannot duplicate the original route, our “Breezer” proudly carries on the same tradition as you will see when you ride with us!
