Good news! If you are one of those people who usually takes the bus from UTEP to downtown, or vice versa, the City is going to let you keep a little jingle in your pocket.
Starting today, June 17, the El Paso Streetcar will be free to ride, at least until Labor Day.
The El Paso Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Management District and DoubleTree Hotel are sponsoring the rides every day through Labor Day.
So you can take the trolley instead of spending your milk money on the bus.
Sure, the trolley takes a little longer, and you never know exactly when it’s coming, but a buck and a half is a buck and a half, am I right?
(My milk money goes towards Natural Light. You can buy Natural Light by the quart at PoPo’s at Mesa and Fourth, conveniently located just off the trolley route.)
Because the City can’t lose money fast enough, and the taxpayers still have a little left.
