      in 2009 by Eva Ritchey.  Eva was

      joined by two civic minded women,

      Shirley Palmer-Hill and

      Verna Shipman.  They envisioned

      a unique trolley system in downtown

      Hendersonville, North Carolina.

      After the pilot project ended at the

      end of the summer and it was

      evident that public funding was not

      available, Eva decided to go into

      business with the owner of the other                trolley in the pilot project.

      sole owner of The Trolley Company.


      Eva has been an advocate for mass

      transit for more than twenty years.  She

      loves trolleys.  In her words, "Trolleys

      are rolling communities.  They create a

      sense of fun.  People don't think of

      them as mass transit.  They think of
