(SPAN), a green trolley, restored
with wooden benches and shiny brass
fittings offered Dentonites an old-
fashioned way of getting around the
city. For 50 cents the trolley would
take you to either run errands or a 30
minute scenic tour of Denton.
Its daily route, from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m., began behind the First National
Bank on Austin Street. The first stop
The trolley makes its stop in front of
the University Union in order to pick
up or drop off NT students. Photo by
was the post office on Locust Street,
then the Emily Fowler library. Al-
though the route did not include the
Golden Triangle Mall, Roland Jara-
millo, a driver and Denton resident,
said the route was supposed to ex-
pand when another trolley was added.
The next stop was the Civic Center,
followed by the Student Union at
TWU, then a stop at the residence
halls on Bell Street. The trolley then
went down University Drive and
from there turned left onto Elm
Street. Two stops on Elm were at
Hickory and First Streets, then an-
other stop at the intersection of Mul-
berry and Carroll Streets. The NT
University Union was the next stop.
For students attending both NT
and TWU, the trolley provided an
alternative to parking hassles at the
universities. It took 13 minutes to get
from UNT to TWU and 27 minutes
from TWU to UNT. After stopping
at the NT University Union, the trol-
ley headed toward Eagle Drive which
passed the International Order of
Odd Fellows (IOOF) cemetery on
the corner of Eagle Drive and Carroll.
The intersection of Locust and Prairie
was the last stop.
The ride was about 30 minutes
long, but could last an entire after-
noon if you visited each of the 13
stops the trolley made. - by DeLinda
