Covering the heart of Downtown and its surrounding hotel areas, the Old SLO Downtown Trolley costs a mere 50 cents. The historic mode of transportation spans from the hotels on the north end of Monterey Street near Highway 101 to the intersection of Higuera and Nipomo Streets. With a regular Thursday evening route throughout the year and a seasonal schedule on Fridays and Saturdays, the trolley offers passengers a convenient, car-free form of public transit.
