The Willow Hill Comet



The Willow Hill Comet is a Norte walk/bike/roll train connecting Slab Town neighborhood to Willow Hill Elementary for Fridays Fantastico.

The Comet departs from its Station at Darrow Park at 8:20. The Comet runs a short but sweet route down Monroe Street and then up Hill Street.

It’s a lovely 500m ride.


The Comet will return to its Station after school at 4:10.

A Norte volunteer will lead The Comet both to and from school. Parents are responsible for getting their child to The Comet Station on time as well as picking them up there after school.

Our trains pride themselves on being punctual. We won’t be late for school, therefore, The Comet cannot wait for anyone.

Fridays Fantastico rules apply:

Helmets required.
Safe riding mandatory.
Smiles and High Fives encouraged.

The Comet is currently looking for a conductor.
