Hop on Board and Discover St. Charles!

Whether you are staying in a hotel, B&B or guest house, enjoying the many historical sites, staying with friends and family, or exploring incredible shops and restaurants – your transportation options have been expanded – St. Charles has a trolley!

Drumroll please…it’s free! Yes, you read that right, free.

The St. Charles Trolley runs March 15th thru December 31st. Trolley times are Monday through Saturday from 11:30am to 9:30pm, and Sundays from 11:30am to 7:30pm.

The Trolley makes a loop that takes about 30 minutes and you can ride in comfort.

You’ll have eight opportunities to hop on and off at the designated Trolley stops to visit some of the city’s attractions.  The Trolley starts at the St. Charles Convention Center, then heads to its first stop at the Streets of St. Charles near the AMC Theater, and continues north to the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa.  After leaving Ameristar, it will make three stops along historic Main Street, on the south end at Country Inn & Suites, at the Tourism Center, and near the Foundry Art Centre at the north end of Main.  After leaving Main Street, the Trolley proceeds to the Frenchtown District, then travels along Fifth Street to the Mark Twain Village before looping back to the Convention Center.

While you enjoy the ride, the Trolley driver will share some fun facts about St. Charles. You’ll learn a little about St. Charles’ historic past and its current events. Did you know that St. Charles is also the home of Missouri’s First State Capitol or that it was founded by a French Canadian fur trader named Louis Blanchette?

The Trolley is a fun and easy way to explore St. Charles; be sure to enjoy the ride this season!
