If you’re hoping for a lighter crowd, travel during the week or in the morning. The cars tend to be much more crowded on weekends and in the evening. Try parking near Burns Commons. There’s plenty of free street parking in the area.
When the streetcar reaches either end of the line (Intermodal Station or Burns Commons), there’s a little break while the operator switches ends to start driving in the other direction. The operators are always up for a high-five or quick photo as they’re walking through the vehicle, and if it’s not too busy, will sometimes let little ones get a peek inside the cab.
All Hop stations feature level boarding, so you can just roll right on. No need to fold up strollers on board—just make sure to set the break before the streetcar starts moving. Please don’t block the aisle or doors so other passengers can easily get on and off.
Bottles, sippy cups or covered drinks with a straw are fine, but please leave cups without lids at home.Leave the snacks in your bag – eating is not allowed on board the streetcar. If you use an electronic device that makes noise, please use headphones.
