Downtown to Defiance Trolley

We are excited to announce that the Downtown to Defiance Trolley will once again be making it’s way down the Ruston waterfront; helping alleviate traffic congestion, freeing up parking and help us keep the waterfront accessible to all. The Downtown to Defiance trolley service will run on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, June 1 through September 2, 2018.

“Come visit Point Defiance Park with the Northwest’s only combined zoo and aquarium! Old-growth forest, saltwater beaches and spectacular views offer numerous possibilities for recreation. Point Ruston, a model of revitalization, features waterfront living, fine dining, entertainment and recreation.

Ruston Way offers parks, 2 miles of scenic views and access to the waterfront. It’s a popular place for walking, biking, jogging, scuba diving, fishing, picnicking, parasailing, and great dining.”
