Coast Futura today announced a free demonstration of a clean-energy, affordable, accessible streetcar on the Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line, presented by Roaring Camp Railroads, will take place over two weekends in October. Tickets will be free for the 45-minute demonstration ride on the Coast Futura, taking place Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 16-17 in Watsonville, and Thursday, Oct. 21 through Sunday, Oct. 24, in Santa Cruz. The demonstration, originally planned for spring 2020 and delayed due to the pandemic, will follow current COVID safety guidelines that require all passengers to wear a mask. Rides on the Coast Futura streetcar will be free but must be reserved. Tickets will be available online starting Friday, Oct. 1. The demonstration routes will each be approximately 4 miles, with the Watsonville route running from the intersection of West Beach and Walker Streets to Harkins Slough and back, and the Santa Cruz route running from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk to Capitola and back.
