Yorktown Trolley

Water Street
Yorktown, VA 23690
United States

This complimentary service alleviates the hassle of finding parking close to the waterfront, especially during peak tourist season and during special events. Since its first trip through the historic area in 1999,  ridership has increased from approximately 13,000 annual passengers to an estimated 95,000 passengers every year!

Nostalgia is absolutely a part of the attraction. We have individuals who experienced the trolley experience when they were younger and are now bringing their children to have that same connection to Yorktown. These are memories that will last a lifetime, and we are proud to be a part of those memories." – Darren Williams/Operations Supervisor
