NORFOLK, Neb. -- The Visit Norfolk Area and North Fork Area Transit partnered together and launched a new charter trolley service.

The joint venture fulfills a long-time goal for both organizations.

Traci Jeffrey, Executive Director of Visit Norfolk Area, said, “We are always looking for new ideas to support tourism in the Norfolk area. The trolley is something we’ve been wanting to do for quite some time and it’s exciting to see it come to reality. It will provide a great experience for visitors and residents alike.”

Visit Norfolk Area is asking the public to submit name ideas for the new trolley through the North Fork Area Transit website at northforkareatransit.com/trolley.

“We’d love to have a catchy name for our trolley that is memorable and that we can make our own,” said Traci Jeffrey.

The bright blue trolley had some recent renovations with the help of Love Signs, a local signage company.

It has wooden benches that can seat up to 30 people.

The trolley will be operated as a charter service through North Fork Area Transit.

The transit agency will provide a CDL driver to operate the vehicle and handle bookings.

The service area for charters will include any destination in Madison or Pierce counties.

The base rental rate for the trolley is $550 plus an additional $44 per hour for the driver.

“The trolley is a great addition to the services North Fork Area Transit provides. It attracts a lot of interest wherever it goes and will be a unique part of many special events in the area,” said Jeff Stewart, Executive Director of North Fork Area Transit.
