Bicycles could fall over during a sudden stop and cause injuries to the cyclist and other Trolley riders. Bicycles can always be parked and locked at a bicycle rack along the route or in Forest Park.

Who operates the Loop Trolley?

As an established transit provider, Bi-State Development was asked by regional leadership to take over Trolley operations to avoid a default on federal funding that was used to start up the Trolley operation several years ago. Bi-State Development is committed to providing a safe operation and is dedicated to getting the Loop Trolley system running again to establish a continuity of service.
