Historic RailPark & Train Museum to provide transportation service on Election Day


The Historic RailPark & Train Museum will use the trolley from the BG Trolley Tours and Rentals on Election Day to provide free transportation to voting centers in Warren County.  

“We understand that there is a lot of talk in the community about voters not being able to make it to the polls,” Jamie Johnson, executive director for the Historic RailPark & Train Museum said. “We wanted to take this opportunity to pull the trolley out of its rentals for the day and offer it complementary to the community.”

The trolley will run from 8 a.m to 4 p.m on Election Day only, not on early voting days. The trolley will have four pick-up locations and two drop-off locations. 

The trolley will first stop at the Bowling Green Towers at 8 a.m on Tuesday and then will make a second pick-up stop at Cherry Hall. From there, the trolley will make its first drop-off stop at First Baptist Church. The trolley will then make two additional pick-up stops at Light of the World and Parker Bennett Community Center. The trolley will make its final drop-off stop at State Street Baptist Church. The trolley will be on a continuous loop where citizens are able to get on and off in order to cast their vote and then return to their original location.

Johnson said the locations will be posted to the Bowling Green KY Trolley Tours Facebook page on Tuesday. 

“The way we’re able to offer this to the community is because the Warren County Fiscal Court is the underlying sponsor of the trolley,” Johnson said, “Because of their financial support, we’re able to pull it out of rental commission for the day and allow the community to use it.”
