Go See Trolley


The City of Boise will host an open house on Mayor Dave Bieter’s proposal to bring a streetcar to the downtown area. On First Thursday, Oct. 1, you can speak with city officials about the plan, hear how the idea came about, how it might be funded and where it might roll.

Bieter first proposed the streetcar in 2008. A Streetcar Task Force is studying the idea and expected to release a report by the end of the year. You can leave comments on the plan at the open house, from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the storefront at 821 W. Idaho St.
