Think Green!

Ollie and his trolleys are taking the eco-friendly track and going GREEN! Wait can a trolley do that?? Going green in trolley land means we are moving over to eco-friendly bio-diesel fuel. What is bio-diesel you might ask? Bio-diesel is a clean burning alternative fuel that contains no petroleum. It is created from domestic, renewable resources such as vegetable oil with the added bonus of it being bio-degradable and non-toxic. This is just one of the many ways we are Thinking Green!

Shop, Dine & Discover Your Downtown Scottsdale!

One of our fabulous and talented trolleys operators came to us with an idea a few months ago..."why don't we create a value added card to draw locals into Scottsdale and help boost the economy..." The idea of the Trolley "T" card was born. The team at Ollie the Trolley in conjunction with the Scottsdale Downtown Group have implemented this great campaign.

The “You Want It, We Got It” promotion encourages local living in a way that takes advantage of local services, businesses and amenities. To help encourage local shopping in downtown Scottsdale a new “T” Trolley Card is available to trolley riders and downtown business to encourage residents to ride the trolley and patronize downtown businesses. Use of the “T” Card at participating downtown businesses entitles card holders to discounts and specials. Just look for the 'T' in the window of participating businesses. Cards are available now and are distributed to neighborhood connector and downtown trolley riders, downtown businesses, and at the city of Scottsdale Downtown Office located at 4248 N. Craftsman Court. Cards can also be obtained by calling (480) 312-7750.

Additional information about the Shop Scottsdale campaign is available on-line at:
