Ever-Popular Tramway Summer Pass Program Runs May 1 through August 31, 2022


PALM SPRINGS — Southern California residents have long known that the coolest spot during the blistering summer months is just a 10-minute tram ride away in the alpine forests atop Mount San Jacinto. As of Sunday, May 1, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Summer Pass makes “escaping the heat” easy—and affordable—for everyone when passes again go on sale.

Valid through Aug. 31 2022, the Summer Pass includes unlimited Tram admissions for the passholder, a 10% discount on additional Tram admissions (up to 4 in party), a 10% discount at Peaks Restaurant or Pines Café, and unlimited free parking for the passholder.  Cost of the Summer Pass is $85 for adults and seniors, and $45 for children ages 3-10, and may be purchased at the Tramway’s Valley Station or online at www.pstramway.com beginning May 1.

Passholders also enjoy more than 50 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and multiple campgrounds all within the 14,000-acre pristine forest of the Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness.

The Tram’s Mountain Station offers spectacular views, two restaurants, cocktail lounge, gift shop, natural history museum and two documentary-style movies about the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and the Mount San Jacinto State Park.

The first tram up Monday through Friday is 10:00 a.m. and the first tram up Saturday and Sunday is 8:00 a.m. The last tram up daily is 8:00 p.m. and the last tram down is 9:30 p.m.

Just a short drive from many Southern California cities, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Summer Pass could be the perfect summer escape, especially as gas prices continue to soar,

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world’s largest rotating tram car. Opened in 1963, the Tram’s 80-passenger cars travel along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon from the Valley Station (elevation 2,643 ft.) to the Mountain Station (elevation 8,516 ft.) in approximately 10 minutes.
