Season Three of our pilot program - Still FREE!
Innovation, conservation and FREE transportation: Fueled by the Woodstock Community and sixteen cows.
Thanks to a grant for ‘green’ vehicles to link National Parks to their communities, the 2012 trial is fully funded through the Federal Transit Administration and the National Park Service. Advance Transit will be operating the service for the duration of the trial.
Woodstock’s Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, home of three conservationists, has unique and historic trails for all abilities connected to
The Full Circle of Conservation
town. The Full Circle Trolley will link the Park to Woodstock through an
electric vehicle. Utilizing ‘green’ transportation, it offers residents and
visitors a chance to reduce their ‘carbon-footprint’ by parking and using
this free transportation. Charging the battery-powered Trolley with Cow Power purchased through Green Mountain Power helps farmers in Vermont
by buying electricity generated from agricultural waste—completing the full
circle of recycled energy.

The Full Circle of History
In 1908, The Woodstock Inn ran an electric
bus in town for tourists and residents to be
transported to Woodstock's train station.
This innovative service comes "Full Circle"
one century later in 2012.
The Full Circle Route
The Trolley will run on a twenty-minute loop through town and encourages people to:
Connect from walking trails to the commercial center.
Park their cars for the day and ride the Full Circle Trolley
to various destinations.
Consider how public transportation may affect their
parking or use of areas in our community often visited
