Worcester's new downtown trolley service, Ride the Woo, will be a fun approach to getting around our bustling downtown. It’s also an exciting way to address the public transportation needs vital to local businesses, residents, and those that come from afar to see our great city.

Keeping the trolley experience interesting, Ride the Woo will offer services for weddings, city events, and nights out downtown. Service is scheduled to begin alongside the completion of Polar Park in 2021.

It’s more than safe to say that downtown will be seeing a lot of changes over the years, but one constant is coffee.

Worcester is no stranger to the brew, especially downtown. But what’s coming to a hard-to-miss location on Foster St. will a creative and cultural approach to the familiar bean and fare, kicking things up a notch.

The owners of Boston's inspired Vietnamese coffeehouse, Reign Drink Lab, will open REIGNcafe in the former Figs & Pigs space at the DCU Center. The concept will bring Vietnamese coffee, tea and smoothies, as well as dishes like banh mi, noodle bowls and salad bowls to the DCU Center’s impressive corner location. Opening date is still yet to come.
