The first time the Bangor Trolley hit the streets it was a brutally cold New Year's Eve. Last week it hit the streets again, with a new look.

A nod to Bangor's history hit the road last week. The Community Connector rolled out the newly refurbished trolley to take Bangor city employees to United Way of Eastern Maine’s annual campaign kickoff event last Friday.

The trolley was first unveiled during downtown Bangor's 2018 New Year's Eve celebration. As you can compare from the photo below, the trolley has since been painted to more closely match the rest of the existing Community Connector fleet.

The 1999 cable trolley came to the city by way of the York County Community Action Corp., with a $3,800 price tag. It seats about 20-25 passengers.

Bangor had a trolley system back in the day. Bangor’s Trolley Service ended December 29, 1945.
