Special Trolley Ticket Promotes Downtown Gettysburg Visits

A new special ticket promotion offers Gettysburg National
Military Park visitors a special rate for entrance to the David Wills House
and all-day rides on the trolley. For just $5.50 for adults and $ 4.00 for
youths, visitors to the park Museum and Visitor Center can buy a ticket to
the David Wills House in downtown Gettysburg and an all-day shuttle pass.

In addition, the trolleys serving the Lincoln line now have a new look with
photos of the park Museum and Visitor Center, and the David Wills House,
and the tagline “One Ride. Great Experiences.”   Trolleys are part of a new
transportation system serving visitors and the local community in
Gettysburg, Pa.  The system is operated by the Adams County Transit
Authority.

 The special rate is one of several new ideas that are being put into place
to increase ridership on the trolley. Main Street Gettysburg has been
working with the National Park Service, Adams County Transit Authority, the
Gettysburg Foundation, and the Borough of Gettysburg to find ways to
increase ridership.

 “There’s been a nice increase in the number of visitors taking advantage
of the trolley to go into the town of Gettysburg,” said Deb Adamik, Main
Street Gettysburg president.

 The new ticket is only available at the Museum and Visitor Center at 1195
Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, and it will remain on sale through the year.
 The David Wills House is a new museum located in the heart of the historic
district of Gettysburg that tells the story of the aftermath of the battle
and President Abraham Lincoln’s visit to give the Gettysburg Address .
Officially part of Gettysburg National Military Park, the museum is
operated by Main Street Gettysburg. Located at 8 Lincoln Square, the museum
includes five galleries, two recreated rooms – the David Wills law office
and the Lincoln bedroom, two interactive exhibits, two films, and gift
shop. For more information, 866-486-5735 or www.davidwillshouse.org.
