Gatlinburg Trolley Will Save You Money
The City of Gatlinburg is offering an even more convenient way to travel through Gatlinburg. The City is offering Free Gatlinburg Trolley service to patrons along the length of the Parkway.
The free Gatlinburg Trolley which is specially painted will operate from 10 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily starting June 13, 2015 through August 16, 2015. Extra stops have been established along the special route to bring the number to 40 along Parkway.
Approximately 800,000 patrons use Gatlinburg’s Trolleys annually, making it the fifth-largest Mass Transit System in the state. It originated in 1980 with only six Trolleys, but the fleet has grown to 20-plus Trolleys servicing approximately 50 miles of Trolley routes. Click here to View the Routes
All Gatlinburg Trolleys are handicap accessible.
You can now hop aboard the Gatlinburg Trolleys all day long for just $2 a day with unlimited access to the Red, Blue, Purple, Yellow and Green Trolley routes. The $2 Pass is sold at City Welcome Centers as well as at City Hall and the Mass Transit Center, plus numerous Gatlinburg lodging facilities.
The City of Gatlinburg also received a grant which allowed them to share real time locations of the trolleys and approximate arrival times at the trolley shelters. They are doing this with the help of a global positioning system. Click here to view the locations of the Trolleys.
