Give trolleys a chance

Vote yes and you give trolleys a chance. It approves a feasibility study. The ballot wordage is long. It assures you trolleys will only be implemented, with private funding, with the approval of the civic and business community.

Trolleys add to our character and vitality, stimulate business, meet civic goals, differentiate Aspen. It’s happened in urban Dallas, Detroit, Galveston, Kenosha, Seattle and 25 other cities.

We can do it here. Horse-drawn trolleys were here in 1890. Do your own research; go to
