"Free Chicago trolleys" Trolleys (some are FREE) Tip by m-gem

Trolleys (some are FREE), Chicago: 27 reviews and 13 photos

There are various free trolleys that run around Chicago, I think mainly in the summer. They fill in some of the gaps that the El leaves, making it a bit easier to get to some of the touristy areas. Each one spreads out from the Loop to some area that people usually want to visit, like the Mag Mile, or the area with the aquarium and natural history museum. You can pick up a map with details at all tourist info centers. They can be quite packed, esp at peak hours, and the buses aren't air conditioned, but they can still be fun thanks to the snarky, humourous commentary from the driver (who are also very helpful in getting you where you want to go).
