Kokomo - free trolley service to continue through 2011

The City of Kokomo is announcing that the City-Line Trolley will continue to be free to all riders through 2011. Until 2010, Kokomo was one of the largest Indiana communities without low-cost public transportation.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight had pledged to install a public transit system after nearly 40 years when the last City buses stopped running.

“While I was on the City Council, one of the most common complaints was the absence of affordable public transportation,” said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight. “The trolleys are reliable, convenient and cut down on traffic and emission going into the air.” InsideIndianaBusiness
