Please note that we just learned that the "trolleys" are being used at another event in Des Moines Friday and Saturday.  We are bummed about that but "buses" are eager to please and will step in for the trollies to make us happy.  So let's think on the bright side:  It's still free and the buses are air conditioned and perhaps even better if it's raining that day.

This is NOT part of our official agenda but simply a suggestion of something fun to do to enjoy the city.
 
It' normally is a free trolley ride but the first weekend of August it will be a FREE "BUS" ride thru downtown DSM, starting at the capitol and going through East village and down to the Pappajohn Sculpture Gardens.  Lunch is not provided but many suggestions for lunch will be offered along the way.

Maps provided by Lila.  Click here to see the route! The "bus" runs every 10 minutes and you are free to go anytime; however, if you want to meet up with other Riders, the goal is to meet at 12 noon on the East side of the capitol.  Park near the building and wait on the street, where the bus stops. 

​If you can't make the bus on Friday, the D-Line bus also runs from 7 AM to 5 PM on Saturday. 

Des Moines has changed!  See it for yourself!
