SALISBURY, Md. - The Downtown Trolley will make its first trip beginning at Salisbury University at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28.

Salisbury City Council President Jake Day said the trolley will resemble a bus.

It will connect the community with the downtown area. It is now making stops in Ocean City and Berlin for the summer months and will run during the winter months in Salisbury.

" The intent is to help downtown businesses prosper by connecting about 10 thousand students and faculty members and the Salisbury University area up to downtown which is about 1.2 miles." said Day.

The trolley will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights during the fall semester beginning at SU at 7 p.m.

The last trip to the West Main Street area will occur around 2 a.m. The trolley will make continuous loops, lasting about 30 to 35 minutes.

Day said the introductory fee for trolley riders is expected to be $1. The funds will go toward the trolley project.

" Shore Transit was able to obtain $50,000 in grant money for this project through a Maryland Transit Administration and City Council put $16,000 toward the trolley project, said Day.

Day expects the trolley to help form a stronger connection between Salisbury University and communities within Wicomico County.

The project is a partnership between Salisbury University, City Council and Shore Transit.
