TULSA - Tulsa's free downtown trolley service is expected to continue past the holidays.
The service began in October and was expected to run through the holiday season.
Organizers tell 2NEWS that it has been so successful, they will keep it running.
"Right now, we're in the throes of a campaign, looking for corporate sponsors, and we'll start on that here after the first of the year," said Bob Fleischman, President of the Brady Arts District Business Association. "In the meantime, in January, businesses that have stepped forward to sponsor the trolley are going to continue to sponsor it on its own."
Fleischman says an average of 200 passengers ride the trolley, every night it operates.
Businesses are feeling the positive impact, as well.
"It helps our business quite a bit with people knowing that they can go place to place. It brings more people in to each area," said Kenny Hopkins, the manager of Hey Mambo.
The trolley makes 13 stops, while looping through the Brady District, Blue Dome District and Deco District.
It operates every Friday and Saturday night from 5:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
It will also operate on New Year's Eve.
