The Blue Water Trolley

The Blue Water Trolley: A Unique Tour Recapturing the Past of Public Transit and the Blue Water Area

Trolley Fares in 2013 are still just 10 cents per person. The fare for Senior Citizens (60 and up) and persons with valid Medicare cards and handicapped is 5 cents.

The Blue Water Trolley, Michigan's finest tourist value, is brought to you by Blue Water Area Transit and local area merchants. The trolley tours the beautiful Blue Water Area, where two countries, U.S.A. and Canada, come together across the St. Clair River.

For an additional fare, the trolley also interconnects with Port Huron's city-wide transit system which serves all major shopping and industrial centers in the area.

The Blue Water Trolley's season begins June 10th and runs through September 12th, then runs every Saturday until October 12th.

The Blue Water Tour

The one hour tour, which includes a swing by various local points of interest, takes you through the heart of Port Huron and along the river front for a panoramic glimpse of the Blue Water Bridges, the Thomas Edison Statue and Depot. The starting point for each run is downtown at 331 Huron Avenue. You can also catch the trolley at Blue Water Area Transit's Quay Street transfer point, where other system buses interconnect, and at other designated stops shown on the Tour Map.

Due to road construction, please contact Blue Water Area Transit for changes in pick up locations.
