Want to be a trolley driver in linden hills?


Have you ever wanted to do something totally unique? How about operating a trolley car? The Minnesota Streetcar Museum, one of the few “living history” museums in the Twin Cities, needs volunteers to operate the historic Minnesota streetcars at its two streetcar lines. The Excelsior Streetcar Line is located in downtown Excelsior. The Como-Harriet Streetcar Line is in the Linden Hills neighborhood near the Lake Harriet Band shell in Minneapolis.
In addition to operators, they are also looking for volunteers to become station agents, and recruiting people intersected in maintaining the fleet of streetcars and the track.
There will be informational meetings in late March. Operator training starts in early April. Operator trainees need to be at least 18 years old and must be physically capable of operating a streetcar for at least three hours a minimum of once per month and have a valid driver’s license. During training, which is scheduled on a flexible basis, you’ll learn how to operate the streetcar as well as a little history about Twin City’s streetcars. For more information, visit the Museum’s website, www.TrolleyRide.org or contact Pat Cosgrove at volunteer@trolleyride.org or 952-953-6559. Operator applications are due March 31st. Station Agent and maintenance crew applications are welcome at any time.
