Trolley Car 36 at Riverview Park


Trolley Car 36 is Rockford's only rail-based trolley which runs its course along the banks of the Rock River from Riverview Park to the Auburn Street Bridge. Bench style seating on the trolley can accommodate up to 32 passengers per ride.

Board the Trolley at the Trolley Station in Riverview Park (on Thursdays, board at Nicholas Conservatory), ride along Madison Street beside the scenic Rock River Recreation Path, stop for a brief visit to the Eclipse Lagoon and Gardens, travel to the Symbol, then turn around and return to the Trolley Station. Trolley Car 36 is wheelchair accessible; however, the trolley is limited to 2 wheelchairs per ride.

Trolley Car 36 also offers public rides on Fridays during the Rockford City Market.
