Free Tram Admission in June for Qualifying First Responders

PALM SPRINGS — For the entire month of June, all qualified first responders receive free admission to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway as part of “First Responders Days.” In addition, up to four of their guests receive 25% off their regular Tram fares.

According to Tramway General Manager Nancy Nichols, “We are honored to welcome those who dedicate their lives to protect and serve our communities. ‘First Responders Days’ allows us to extend the Tramway experience as an expression of our gratitude to first responders. We truly hope they enjoy their visits along with their family and friends.”

Qualifying personnel include (see full list on

  • Fire and police personnel
  • California Highway Patrol
  • County Sheriff Officers
  • Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs)

This program runs June 1-30, 2023, with tickets only available at the Tramway’s Valley Station on the day of visit.

Note: “First Responders Days” is scheduled for June instead of August this year due to the Tram’s annual maintenance closure moving to August to accommodate the Tramway’s 60th Anniversary in September.
