I would be happy if they simply banned the irritating bell that they constantly ring. Its especially a nuisance when they travel through a residential area ringing the thing to excite their riders.

Uh, rail is louder than the trolley...we voted it in, those suckers are here to stay. Pedestrians are becoming more bold and aggressive, darting out inbetween traffic because they feel cars will stop. Tourists are the worst, but locals are to blame as well. There is another side to the coin. On the flip side to this argument, many of these trolleys have either the driver or another trolley employee talking to the riders on loudspeakers, which I think is a distraction for the driver. Taking the extreme views, to ban trolleys, or to ban pedestrians, is no solution at all, please provide real solutions and participate in meaningful, intelligent, adult discussions. Just sayin.

So true on the statement on pedestrians are getting bolder. I'm on the road a lot and the rule now is they truly have the right of way.

The trolley is actually more efficient than OTC's TheBus. In fact, the TheBus sued a trolley company to cease and decease and won because the trolleys were taking business away from OTC when the trolley started taking on public riders.
