Boardwalk Tramcar raises rates

By Shannon McDonald

Wildwood shore goers usually aren’t surprised when the prices on boardwalk games go up every year, but this summer, the infamous Tramcar will see a spike in prices. The rate for one ride will now be $2.50 – up from the steady $2 fare, as NBC40 reports.

The Tramcars will run every weekend until 5 p.m., and weekday service will begin in mid-May. Come the official start of the season, frequent riders can buy $5 unlimited passes that can be used on weekdays. The rate increase will help pay for maintenance costs.
