***NOTE to OUR BRONCOS FOOTBALL SHUTTLE RIDERS***
***BRONCOS vs COLTS GAME --- Sept 18, 2016***
Thank you for joining us to take the most unique ride to the game! For those fans who rode with us on Sunday afternoon, September 18, for our big win against the Colts, we had a brief mechanical problem taking people back to Confluence Park after the game. We got back up and running pretty quickly, but, unfortunately, we had to stop running for a short period during the peak post-game rush --- and we know that several of you walked back to Confluence Park. While it was a beautiful evening after a beautiful Broncos win, you did not get to experience the full beautiful roundtrip on the Trolley. Therefore, if you walked back to Confluence Park after this afternoon's game, please hold onto your green Trolley ticket from your ride to the Colts game. We will honor that ticket on the Trolley at the next Broncos game, which is Sunday, October 9, against the Atlanta Falcons. Kickoff is at 2:05 PM --- the Trolley rolls at 12:05 PM! Hope to see you there, and give you the full roundtrip --- and of course, enjoy a Broncos win in between!

The Platte Valley Trolley at Confluence Park
Ride an open trolley car along the scenic South Platte Greenway and see Denver from an open-air “Breezer”! Our Trolley operates from Confluence Park (REI), past the Downtown Aquarium, Children’s Museum of Denver and Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Make a tax-deductible donation today to help with the refurbishment of the Trolley car body and upkeep of the Trolley track. Read more about ways to donate or simply donate below via PayPal (which also takes credit cards):
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 Denver 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 unfavorable.
If you would like to join the Denver Tramway Heritage Society, fill out and mail us your 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. Volunteers act as ambassadors to the city of Denver, taking visitors on a tour back into the history of the city and providing a window into how Denver came to be the growing city it is today. It’s really fun…join us!
