Ride Sun Metro’s WinterFest Express This Holiday Season

El PASO, Texas – Sun Metro joins in the spirit of the winter season as El Paso’s downtown holiday festivities come to life.
This year Destination El Paso and Sun Metro have partnered up to provide residents and visitors a full holiday experience on Sun Metro’s WinterFest Express. The trolley will provide FREE rides to Winterfest.
“I am thrilled we are launching the WinterFest Express as it is like no other ride in town for children of all ages,” Sun Metro Director Jay Banasiak said. “We have transformed a classic trolley into a unique ride experience with holiday decorations that will bring back vintage memories as when it first operated some years ago. We are delivering a transit service where patrons can enjoy downtown’s wintertime activities without the worries of dealing with traffic.”
The WinterFest Express will transport passengers to and from the WinterFest beginning Saturday, November 18 through December 31, 2017 (weekends only). Passengers will be able to board at Glory Road Transfer Center (100 E. Glory Road next to UTEP) every 30 minutes, head downtown and board again on Sheldon Court (near the Camino Real hotel / WinterFest festivities).
Glory Road Parking Tickets are redeemable for $2 off a skate pass at the WinterFest skating rink.  
WinterFest Express Hours:
Friday: 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Saturday: 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
