Monterey is home to many "firsts" including California's first theatre and California's first constitutional convention. Today the historic city added yet another addition to that list, the first all-electric wireless trolley in the United States.
Monterey-Salinas Transit has officially revved up the zero-emission vehicle of the future to its already green friendly fleet. The former gas-powered trolley has been completely reinvented with an innovative electric motor which fully charges on an electric pad, rather than having to plug it in.
The electric trolley joins two other gas-powered trolleys to provide free transportation to visitors throughout the Monterey area. The free MST trolley service runs every 10 to 12 minutes from 10am to 7pm, from Memorial Day (May 23, 2015) through Labor Day weekend, (September 7, 2015).
