WHEN YOU RIDE THE TROLLEYS YOU'RE RIDING LOCAL HISTORY

If you ride the trolleys you'll be riding history. That's because the Yakima Valley Trolley railroad is the last historically intact early 20th Century electric interurban railroad in existence. The railroad is already on the National Register of Historic Places.
Yakima City officials say no other electric interurban railroads left in America still use all their original infrastructure and streetcars and locomotives like Yakima Trolleys.
