WILDWOOD, NJ – Do you love those Wildwood days? Well, if you do, then it’s time to watch the tram car, please. That’s because the Wildwood boardwalk trams will no be running 7 days a week.

“The Wildwoods Boardwalk Special Improvement District (SID) has announced the beginning of seven-day operations for the Sightseer Tram Car on the Wildwoods Boardwalk, as well as a full schedule of Free Boardwalk Parades and Fireworks beginning in June,” the city announced today. “The Sightseer Tram Car kicked off the 2022 season on June 2, and is now transporting visitors up and down the Wildwoods Boardwalk seven days a week.”

According to the city, on Thursday through Sunday, the Tram Cars will start at 11 a.m., and on Monday through Wednesday the Tram Cars will start rolling at 4 p.m. Once fully staffed, the Tram Cars will start at 11 a.m. every day.

This year, the tram cars celebrate their 74th birthday, now blasting the iconic phrase, “Watch The Tram Car Please!”
