    What is consider the Historic River district?

  4. Georgia's Rome, June 24, 2019:

    The historic district is located between the rivers. The district encompasses from Tribune/W 1st Street; 8th Ave/Glenn Milner Blvd; and 1st Ave. The map shows you the main Roman Chariot route in red. You can also request service from other locations between the rivers. We put the most popular requested routes in dotted yellow.

  5. Kristi Kent, May 20, 2024:

    The Between the Rivers Historic District is the historic neighborhood in downtown Rome. The neighborhood is sandwiched between Broad Street and Glenn Milner Blvd. The chariot cannot drive on any roads that exceed 25 miles per hour.

    We appreciate this service. Being new to the area and ones who like to take advantage of walking as much as possible to downtown dining and shopping, this service is a nice touch and much appreciated, especially after dark to have a safe ride home.
