Tourism Fuels Scottsdale’s Trolley Use

May 21, 2012 | Filed under: car accident

Scottsdale’s two year old Hospitality Trolley beat forecasts of operation this year by increasing the amount of operation hours and reducing the amount of traffic on the street during high season. The trolley is free to use giving tourist the opportunity to travel the city at ease and explore. In return the city sees an economic increase of tourist spending totaling about $3 billion.

Scottsdale splits the trolley’s cost with businesses, hotels and resorts by providing front door stops, or print advertising. Hotels also pay a bed tax which helps cover the cost of the trolley which is about $180,000.

About fifty percent of the tourist money is made during high season. The need to provide easy transportation to and front various events during high season birthed the idea of the Hospitality Trolley. The trolley connects visitors and events more efficiently. It also reduced the number of traffic accidents and injuries on the road.

Visitors find it easier to move from events to shops to dining with the use of the trolley. It has also been discovered that various visitors are more daring to explore without having to put themselves at risk by driving.

The decision to keep the trolley running is up to the City Council. The first year the trolley was in service, it missed its goal of operating a minimum of 12 boardings per hour. This year the trolley was able to exceed that amount achieving 14.2 boardings per hour about 28% more. That means that this year more than 16,000 riders were able to enjoy the trolley.

According to experts in this field, while the success of this year is impressive as opposed to last year’s numbers, there is not enough data. It takes at least three years to be able to tell whether the transit program is working. So far, March has proven to be the most popular month, touting 7,059 riders, more than any other month.

The risk of an injury can exist even with the use of a trolley. While there are many advantages such as reducing the amount of traffic there are always instances that can put an individual at danger. When that happens, it is time to call a Scottsdale injury lawyer. If you are injured, you deserve the right to compensation. An experienced injury lawyer can help win your case.
