Trolley


In 2021 the City of Chillicothe was one of eleven cities chosen across the country to participate in the Bloomberg Harvard Innovation Track, a 9-month program that teaches a human-centric approach to problem solving.

The City of Chillicothe used this opportunity to focus on the improvement of the public transit system.  The most significant barrier to overcome was how to create a positive experience for all residents and visitors to utilize the Chillicothe Transit System.  The framework of the project was "to move more people more places and compel the broader community to take a fresh look at transit." 

From this effort the idea of the Chillicothe Trolley was born.  In July of that year, Transit acquired a trolley for a two-day trial which operated throughout the downtown area.

The trial was conducted for feasibility purposes to ensure the long-term investment of a trolley would be beneficial to the Chillicothe Transit System.  More than 700 rides were completed over the two days.  Based on in-person and survey results, the feedback for this trial was well over 90 percent positive.

As a result, Chillicothe Transit moved forward with the purchase of a trolley.  The trolley will run on various routes throughout the year across different areas of the city and for special events.  Check back often for updates on schedules, routes, and special events.
