JTA is finally ready to expand nighttime services with enough ridership this weekend

After an initial test run, the Riverside Avondale Night Trolley launched earlier this year to great success, shuttling Riverside riders Friday and Saturday nights during the first weekend of every month. Now organizers want to bring the same service Downtown. This weekend, a fleet of buses will roll out to various Downtown hot spots, including The Elbow district of nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and connect to the Riverside Avondale Night Trolley in 5 Points. If enough of us ride, maybe JTA will think about making it permanent.
