Area Mayor Wants Trolley

Posted by wlpo on August 18, 2009

San Francisco or Spring Valley? Spring Valley mayor Cliff Banks wants to run a vintage trolley between Spring Valley and surrounding towns. He explained his idea to the city council last night.

He says he got the idea from Beverly Caroll-Owens, a woman that was running for mayor before supporting Banks instead. Banks says you would be able to ride it to towns like Oglesby and Cherry, with possible stops in Dalzell and other towns.

The trolley would run every day, year-round, and would be paid for through a state transportation program and fare, though state funding hasn’t been secured.
