What is a Public Trolley Tour? A Public Trolley Tour is where you can purchase one or up to 28 reservations on our Public Trolley Events! You meet at a specific location (and this is noted when you make your reservation as pick up locations are all different for all tours) and ride with others on the Naperville Trolley. If you are not comfortable riding with others, then please do not book a public tour. Masks are currently not required, but you are welcome to wear one of you want. The Trolley is fully enclosed, and the windows open, so we can have some fresh air flowing. All Trolleys have heat and air-conditioning, and run in all weather. Holiday sweaters and/or matching family pajama's are encouraged!
Tell your friends/group/neighbors which tour you're signing up for, and they can sign up for that one too! State ID required at check-in.Please arrive at least ten minutes before scheduled start time as the tour WILL depart on time, and plan for heavy traffic when meeting the tour. There are no refunds or changing dates once you sign up. No coolers allowed on board, but you can bring a coffee mug with a lid. No food or candy or cookies allowed in the Trolley. All drinks must have a lid. Book Public Tour!
Note: Should you choose to purchase every reservation on a Public Trolley Tour (28), the price is still "per person" as stated at time of purchase and you must meet at the Public Tour pick up location as stated at time of purchase. Please know that we do not offer you "private charter pricing" if you book all 28 reservations. Please join us in May to make your private booking to get the earlier times and those rates. We begin taking reservations for private charters on May 1st at 10:00am CST or later via email requests. Thank you!
Why does my infant need a reservation? In the transportation world, every heart beat counts as a passenger. From one day old to 99 years young = you are taking one spot on the Trolley Tour. Yes, we know you can "hold the baby" but that is not how this works in the transportation world. One = One, no matter what size or age. All need a reservation as all take up one spot of the registry.
