Salem Mayor Dominick Pangallo Announces Return of Free Trolley Program for Residents

Salem Mayor Dominick Pangallo, in partnership with the Salem Trolley, is pleased to once again offer free rides on the Salem Trolley for Salem residents starting June 1st and lasting until September 30th. Residents can receive a Resident Ticket by providing proof of residency at the Salem Trolley office (8 Central Street).

"I want to thank the Salem Trolley for their generosity in once again working with us to subsidize this terrific program to make it possible for Salem residents to take advantage of a free trolley ride," said Mayor Pangallo. "They are a true asset to Salem and our business community."

2024 marks the twelfth year of the free trolley ride program. Since the start of the program in 2013, a total of nearly 14,000 rides have taken place.

The Trolley runs seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Trolley's route includes much of downtown Salem and also the Salem Willows. Regular stops are located at the Salem Visitors Center, Witch History Museum, Trolley Depot, Old Burial Point/Witch Trial Memorial, Pickering Wharf/Sea Level restaurant, the House of the Seven Gables, Salem Witch Museum, Peabody Essex Museum, Witch Dungeon Museum, and Salem Witch House/Salem Inn. Passenger requested stops are also made at the Salem Maritime Site, Salem Ferry, Winter Island, Salem Willows, and Hamilton Hall/Phillips House/Chestnut Street.
