Do you love history? Are you always on the hunt for a new attraction to enjoy with friends and family? Help us welcome the #.04 Trolley back home to Arvada! Come learn about the plan for the trolley and provide your feedback on our proposed permanent installation of this important part of Arvada history - with your help, we can make this a true asset to our community.


Project Overview:

The #.04 Denver Tramway Streetcar, called “the trolley,” served the community of Arvada for decades with a direct link from Olde Town to downtown Denver. The trolley is coming back to Olde Town for residents and visitors to see this artifact in its historic setting, restored to its former glory. The restoration includes a complete refurbishment of the interior and exterior of the streetcar to its appearance at last run in July 1950, reflecting its historical significance as the very last streetcar to operate before the closure of the tramway system.


This is a collaborative project of the City of Arvada, the Friends of the #.04 Trolley, the Denver Tramway Heritage Society, and Colorado Preservation Inc. It is funded in large part by History Colorado’s State Historical Fund, and is listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places. In order to retain its protected historic status, the Colorado Historic Preservation Review Board must approve the location and site plan of the trolley, and they have strongly favored the Grandview site plan (just east of the Grandview Bridge along Grandview Avenue). This location is very close to the original trolley junction and rail line, providing for historic interpretation for the trolley.


Public Open House:

Join our online public open house on Thursday, February 25 at 6:00PM to learn more about the trolley, our plan for the historic interpretation of the trolley at the Grandview site, and to provide your feedback. Register here to attend.
