CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — You could call it throwback Thursday in Campustown today with this way to get around.
You could get a free ride on a trolley.
The Champaign Center Partnership and the Champaign Park District are behind it.
It’s a way to encourage people to visit Campustown while students are gone during the summer.
15 to 20 people can be seated at a time.
“As a parent, I just really appreciate fun, different experiences that are free to do with my kids that are outside and safe and it’s just a nice way to interact with our community,” said Elizabeth van der Velde of Champaign.
The next free trolley ride is happening on July 15th from 4 to 7 p.m. You can pick up a ride at the north entrance of the Illini Union.
