All aboard! Third grade teachers in San Diego County can take their class on a free 25-minute downtown loop on the SDG&E Silver Line’s Vintage Trolley. This exciting new program is available to all Third Grade students in San Diego County and is sponsored by SDG&E and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System.
The program gives students the experience of learning how San Diegans got around in the early part of the 20th century, how public transit is still relevant today, and how transit connects our communities. The focus of San Diego history is part of the History/Social Science standards for Grade 3.
The Vintage Trolley operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and weekends. By riding the Vintage Trolley, students will develop an appreciation for the past, learn about landmarks and get a better understanding of the role transit has played in San Diego for more than 100 years!
Dates and times are limited, so get reservations soon. Requests are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Prior to the Vintage Trolley ride, teachers can incorporate Third Grade curriculum created by professional educators to enhance the riding experience.

Teachers also have the option to request complimentary round-trip transportation on our regular bus and Trolley routes for your class to travel between the closest bus stop or Trolley station to your school and the 12th & Imperial Transit Center. Check out the MTS Classroom Day Pass Program.
