The Palm Springs Tramway is giving first responders free rides in August

Throughout the month of August, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is offering free trips up the mountain to hike, hangout, eat, or just get a few hours of relief from the scorching Coachella Valley heat.

All qualified first responders will receive free admission to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway as part of “First Responders Days.” In addition, the Tram will give up to four of their guests 25% off of their regular tram fares during the entire month of August.

“We are happy to have our second annual ‘First Responders Days’ and welcome the men and women who so courageously protect and serve our communities,” Tramway General Manager Nancy Nichols said. “We truly hope they enjoy their visit with us and make cherished memories with their families and friends.”
