Trolley to Baseball: More Double – the – Play Games on the Way August 23

Take in a Local BallgameLackawanna County’s Electric City Trolley joined forces with Scranton/WilkesBarre RailRiders hitting it out of the ballpark—literally as shuttling fans from the Scranton site to PNC Field for games has proved to be a homerun for both organizations. Started over four years ago, ballpark excursion rides have become an increasingly popular attraction.

“I just thought it would be a great partnership,” said LCECT Manager Wayne Hiller describing the unique experience and ticket sale opportunities with the connection. Alleviating traffic hassles can be a thing of the past as many hop on the bandwagon, or in this case trolley, to relax and soak in the sights along the ride to the stadium at Montage.

“They [passengers] just don’t want to deal with the traffic,” he reports as season ticket holders often park and participate, along with, those eager to optimize the memory of their first game.

Whether it’s a first or thirty-first day at the park, fans are flocking to the idea.The excursion also opens doors to several who may have missed the chance of taking in a live game. Seating up to 62 people this 1926 JD Brill double center door trolley is handicap accessible. He also reports an influx of participation by several area businesses and organizations rewarding their employees booking group trips.

With trolley rides to and from the event at $11 or Excursion Pricing including game admission and a $2 voucher for the Concession Stand or Team Store at $20; Hiller considers the package a family friendly deal.
