Color Concept for SC Trolley.





San Clemente Trolley
The City of San Clemente will launch its summer weekend trolley service this Memorial Day weekend. The trolley, named San Clemente Trolley will be made available to riders at no charge. The trolley has an open-air (windowless) concept that will be easily identifiable as a total of three trollies cruise throughout town. Each one will have destination areas denoted on the exterior, and will say “Free Rides” so residents and visitors know the service is complimentary.
The trollies will travel along the coastal area of San Clemente and pick people up at the designated stops every 15 minutes. The trolley will be available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. The stops will be clearly noted with signage the city is currently having designed. See the table for the locations of the trolley stops.

The City Council was presented with design and color options at their January 17th City Council meeting and the members approved a red-and-black color scheme which is thematic of the San Clemente Tritons football team. 
The funding for the San Clemente Trolley comes from a $1.2 million grant from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) which the city applied for. The grant will cover most of the costs for the service for seven years. The grant requires the city to fund a portion of the trolley service at $146,000 over the seven year grant period. The Friends of San Clemente Foundation also provided a generous donation of $10,000 towards the funding of the capital costs of the trolley.
