Now that summer is right ahead of us, the Sheridan Trolley is out and about - and we can expect to see a lot more of it this year. CEO of the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce, Dixie Johnson, says the service has continued to evolve as community needs grow and priorities shift.
Customized charter trips will take place year-round, but the frequency increases during the summer months alongside the amount of events - and tourists. Economic development efforts in the city and county have also generated more tours, as visitors representing out-of-state businesses consider relocating to Sheridan.
According to the chamber, the Sheridan Trolley already has more than 50 charter trips booked for the summer months - and more are expected. But Johnson says the community will see the real expansion of the trolley service this summer as it will be used for special public events, like the WYO Rodeo performances, where convenient transportation is a necessity.
Just last weekend, the usage of the community shuttle service expanded for the Joan Jett concert at the Trails End Concert Park. Next week it will be used for as-needed transportation for those participating in the City's Park2Park Run/Bike/Stroll along the city's pathways. Johnson says residents and visitors alike can expect that kind of service to continue through the summer.
