In an effort to increase business in the downtown business district, the City Council voted last week to spend $118,000 on a trolley.
However, to pay for the trolley, the city must reduce spending on its Dial-a-Cab program, according to George Sparks, administrator of the Pomona Valley Transportation Authority.
Beginning this fall, the red trolley will run every 30 minutes between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily. Rides will be free for the first 90 days and 25 cents thereafter.
The route includes Bonita Avenue, San Dimas Avenue, Gladstone Street, San Dimas Canyon Road, Eucla Avenue, Arrow Highway and Lone Hill Avenue.
