#1702, one of the new trolleys made an appearance in the Village of West Greenville on the first day of the new routes. Trolley routes and locations can be monitored with the free Trolley Tracker app.

Side note: this tile collage by Suzanne Vitti also lists the sister cities for Greenville: Bergamo, Italy, Kortrijk, Belgium, Tianjin, China.

This pedestrian bridge over the Reedy River gets good usage since the decking boards were recently replaced and the steel repainted.
