Any one who has spent any amount of time on the Wildwood boardwalk has surely heard the the phrase, "watch the tram car please."

The tram car is celebrating it's 70th anniversary and today (Monday, June 11), according to The Press of Atlantic City, you can ride the tram car for just 10 cents, the same price as when the tram car debuted on the boardwalk on June 11, 1949.

According to the report, the tram cars were originally built by the Greyhound Bus Company and can travel 4 to 5 MPH. From May until September, close to 600,000 people will take a ride on the tram car.
