Ride the world famous Yakima Trolleys and experience what an authentic early Twentieth Century electric railroad was really like. Yakima’s trolley system has operated for over 100 years and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as America’s last intact electric interurban railroad. The motorman will entertain you with stories about the trolleys as you are transported 100 years back in time. Yakima Trolleys traverse two routes: a scenic riverside excursion through Selah Gap and a quaint ride past early Yakima homes on Pine Street.

Yakima’s historic trolley system has remained unchanged over the last 100 years. Yakima’s trolley system runs through residential districts built in the 1920s, equally old commercial districts, farmland orchards, and a spectacular river canyon reached via a 117-year-old truss bridge. The carbarn maintenance facility and powerhouse both look the same as they did in 1910 including a belt-drive machine shop and power dynamos.

The trolleys usually begin operation on the last Saturday of May and operate on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays through the last Sunday of September. Special events are occasionally held at the museum, such as a Christmas Trolley with Santa. Private charters and facility rentals are available at any time of the year.
