The Last Day of Tourmobile

Good night, Tourmobile. You served our National Mall in an exclusive fashion for 42 years, charging high prices for on-and-off service for tourists around the National Mall, and while things have dropped off lately, you were always a welcome site for tourists in the area.  Their service ends today, and the Park service will be evaluating new providers of service along the Mall in the coming months. For now, pedicabs and bikes will be the modes of transportation around the Mall.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

One thought on “The Last Day of Tourmobile

  1. I’ve never had a problem with the Tourmobiles. It’s the double decker buses (which always clog the streets by taking up too many lanes and generally acting as if they’re the only ones on the road) and the Trolleys buses (which drive sooooooo slowly even in the left hand lane) that I can’t stand. We’ll miss you Tourmobiles!
