Yakima trolleys are celebrating a new era today according to spokesman Carl Pastin.

For the first time in decades, the Yakima City Council allocated $100,000 to support the trolleys. Pastin says the money will be used to upgrade facilities at the trolley barn and powerhouse.

Pastin says the commitment by the city will also help the trolley land state and federal grants. “On almost all grants they ask who’s involved. And if the owner, the city, isn’t involved you’re facing an up hill battle many times.”

Pastin says now that the city has agreed to help fund the trolleys there is a very good chance Yakima trolleys will be in line for state and federal grants. The grants that may be readily available to historic systems like yakima trolleys.

With the new funding, the trolleys are starting a new era and are hoping for a major role in redeveloping downtown Yakima says Pastin.
