Summer Trolley Stamp Card Contest

To encourage ridership on the Laguna Niguel Summer Trolley, the City encourages all trolley riders to participate in the Summer Trolley Stamp Card Contest!  Trolley riders can participate by obtaining a blank stamp card from a trolley driver.  Each stamp card includes space for 5 stamps. For each ride, the trolley driver will stamp the trolley rider's stamp card.  After completing the stamp card, you can enter the contest by taking a selfie with the completed stamp card, then sharing the photo as listed below.
