6393 East River Road, in the Rochester suburb of Rush, the
New York Museum of Transportation is open all year on Sundays only,
from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The museum's exhibit spaces feature a collection of antique trolley cars, a steam locomotive, fire truck, ambulance, operating model railroad, many other vehicles, and numerous exhibits of photographs and artifacts pertaining to local transportation history. Take the Virtual Tour to learn more.
Mid-May through October, trolley rides operate every half-hour from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Plan to arrive by 3:00 to have time to see and do everything. Your half-hour excursion on the only trolley ride in New York State is aboard one of the museum's 87-year-old trolley cars. You'll hear the clickety-clack on the rail joints and toots from the air whistle at grade crossings, as you travel to Midway Station. There, the Conductor will reverse the poles on the car for the return trip through the beautiful Genesee Valley countryside.
Admission, from mid May through October---the electric trolley ride---is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors 65 and over, and $6 for youths under 12.
From late December through the mid-May, when there are no rides, admission to the New York Museum of Transportation is $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for children under 12.
Group visits at other times during the week are available by appointment (Contact Us. or call us at (585) 533-1113). Visits last about an hour, including a guided tour of the museum and an electric trolley car ride on the 1-mile railroad. Visits can be customized to your group's interests, comprehension levels and time constraints. Admission for group visits: $7 adults; $6 seniors 65 and over; $5 youths under 12 (a $100 minimum charge applies). For groups fewer than 20 total visitors, a track car ride can be substituted for the trolley, weather permitting. Admission for this option is $6 adults; $5 seniors 65 and over; $4 students under 12 (a $50 minimum charge applies).
