“Seeing the city”
Review of City View Trolley

City View Trolley
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is a nice way to see Rapid City. It’s only $2 for the whole day.($1 If Over 60). It takes about one hour if you don’t get off, but the there some very good stops. My favorites are #3 the journey museum, #10 the stavkirk church and #12 the dinosaur park. This is really a tourist bus so be patient if you don’t start at 10:00 am at the milo barber Transportation center on apolda street between 6th and 7th. The narration is automated and seems to be connected with the gps. Listen carefully because there are some odd facts given and other passengers might be talking over the Ps system. There are some good restaurants in the downtown area so just get off near the Main Street square. I liked Que Pasa.

Have gone on this tour with visiting family & is a great way to show Rapid City to visitors. It is well worth the low cost to see an overview of Rapid City & hear some of the history & see high lights of the city, It is an on off trolley.

The Trolley is a terrific and fun way for all ages to see some of the top touring spots in Rapid City. There are numerous pickup and departure stops along the way with places to sit while waiting and signage relaying times . It's an easy way to take children to see some of the highlights for their ages without worrying about parking spots.

We were looking for something to do and my husband asked the front desk and they recommended the City View Trolley. The driver and tour guide were one and the same his name is BRETT. Super nice guy and knew all about the points of interest. The price is VERY reasonable $2.00 up to 61 and $1.00 62 and up. Brett took us to several parks, showed us the little river that in 1972, I think, rained so hard and long that it wiped out a HUGE area of homes and people, so sad. He showed us where all the Presidents statues are, and the main street with a lot of places to eat & drink if you wanted too,
It was a VERY NICE tour and if you are in Rapid City and looking for something to do try taking this trolley, It only takes about an hour and the driver is super.

The trolley is crazy cheap for the services it offers. An all day pass for $2 bucks is an outrageous deal. You see the main attractions throughout the city then get a birds eye view of the entire city from atop dinosaur park. The trolley has a narrative of points of interest, historical, or just plain fun thing about the city and state of South Dakota.

One thing to note, the trolley does have a wheel chair ramp and often caters to some individuals who have a difficult time moving. Due to this sometimes the trolley can be 10 to 15 minutes late. But given the value of riding all day I think it is well worth the wait!
