Trolley rides booming in Little Rock thanks to free rides this summer

 

The streetcar system is a unique feature in downtown Little Rock and recently it has seen more riders than usual.

 

The Rock Region Metro is offering free rides all summer long and has turned out to be a big success for the system. This is the first time the city has offered free rides for an extended period of time.
