The world famous tram cars on the Wildwood boardwalk see their 60th anniversary this year. To celebrate, they will charge what they charged back in 1949 for a one-way ride, a thin dime. Well, for one day anyway.
Patrick Rosenello, executive director of the Boardwalk Special Improvement District, which operates the trams, said the drastic fare reduction – the current rate is $2 each way – was a perfect way to acknowledge an important piece of Wildwoods history.
“I think the trams are synonymous with the Boardwalk,” Rosenello said, adding, “Not having the trams would be like taking the wood off the Boardwalk.”
Another thing synonymous with the tram cars was the warning message the conductor played as they approached walkers in their way. Watch the tramcar please! Some kids and tourists would ignore the approaching tram just to hear the message. Yea, guilty.
