Leafy Passing

The Main Street Mall was a rather failing pedestrian-only affair before the coming of the trolley in 1993.  The Main Street Trolley runs for about two miles.  The downtown area through which it passes continues to evolve, with a lot of conversion of former commercial buildings to condos and apartments.  Many blocks have a pleasant leafy presence, as is the case in this view near the Jefferson station. 

Trolley stops are placed about every two blocks for much of the route.  Weekday trolleys run often on all three routes, and north of Madison, with three lines going northbound and two southbound, transit activity is frequent, colorful, and very enjoyable to watch.
