A new trolley service, operated by the City of Staunton, provides service around Staunton’s downtown area, including stops at the railroad station. This helps to make getting around Staunton’s small and compact downtown area that much easier. There is so much to see and do within walking distance in the heart of Staunton that you really don’t need an automobile (although you CAN lease one should you so desire!)
