The Chillicothe Transit System began its experimentation of a Trolley car on loan through the Bloomberg-Harvard Innovation Track Thursday and Friday.

Asti Powell, Director of the CTS and David Fishel, Director of Utilities share the story behind the project which began eight months ago.

The trolley began its way through the First Capital District Thursday morning, continuing through 6:30pm Thursday and again Friday from 12:00pm-8:00pm.

Chillicothe is one of eleven cities across the country participating in the program as part of the Bloomberg-Harvard City Leadership Initiative.

There’s no fee to ride the trolley and those sharing the roadway should give the same caution and courtesy as to a regular CTS bus.
