About Our Electric Tram
We want all people to be able to experience the Walkway, but not everyone is capable or comfortable venturing out onto the World’s Longest Elevated Pedestrian Bridge - a 212-foot-high structure that is 1.28 miles in length - to enjoy our sweeping, panoramic Hudson Valley views.
To assist seniors, veterans, people with mobility challenges, and those with a fear of heights, the Friends of the Walkway's all-electric 12-passenger, wheelchair accessible tram is in service during select hours.
Tram Hours and Stops
The tram currently operates on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (weather permitting). Reservations are not required.
Passengers may embark and disembark at the Dutchess Welcome Center (Poughkeepsie), Elevator Overlook, Center Overlook (by the flagpole), and Ulster Welcome Center (Highland).
A one-way trip takes approximately 25 minutes. The tram runs on a continuous loop.
Reserve The Tram
Outside of regular operating hours, the tram is available to private tours and to support special events. Contact Theresa Sanchez (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
