NY Museum of Transportation Hosts Electric Trolley Rides Through the Genesee River

RUSH — Enjoy the colors of an upstate autumn from the windows of the only electric trolley car ride in New York State as it passes through scenic countryside in the valley of the Genesee River.

Rides are every Sunday, September 24 through November 5, at the New York Museum of Transportation in Rush.

No reservations are required, as departures are every half-hour throughout the day, starting at 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., and are included free with admission to the museum, but visitors are strongly urged to arrive by 4 p.m. in order to see and do everything.

While the rides are a highlight for visitors, large model railroads, numerous full-size trolley cars, a steam locomotive, antique trucks and cars, horse-drawn vehicles, and smaller artifacts provide a rich, hands-on experience that appeals to kids and older folks alike.

The New York Museum of Transportation is conveniently located 20 minutes south of Rochester at 6393 East River Road, Thruway Exit 46, I-390 south to exit 11, NY Rt. 251 West, then 1 mile north on East River Road.

Family friendly admission for the entire experience is just $8 adults, $7 seniors over 65, and $6 youths age 3 through 12.
