Free Downtown Trolley Service


In 1901 when the first electric trolley lumbered around Greenville, it cost a nickel. Here’s something you never hear: it’s even cheaper now! It’s free and runs on six different routes around the downtown area from Thursday through Sunday year-round (or seasonally for certain routes). It’s a nice break for sore feet and a great way to see the town. The red and blue open-air vintage trolleys are wheelchair accessible and equipped with bicycle racks. 

Below you'll find maps and information on all six routes, info on the FindGreenlink app, a real-time trolley locator, and trolley rules. 🚎


Trolley Routes

Downtown trolleys operate on a fixed-stop system, making a continuous loop along each route. To board the trolley along the routes, passengers must stand near one of the trolley stop signs.

Trolley Rules

  1. Trolley drivers may only allow passengers on and off the trolley at designated stops.

  2. To alert the driver you are ready to disembark, pull the yellow cord that runs along the wall at seat level. Once you pull the cord, the driver will let you off at the next designated trolley stop.

  3. The maximum ride time is one complete loop of the trolley route. Passengers may not remain on board the trolley continuously.

  4. Trolleys are not available for private events.

  5. Drinks must have a secure lid, something that screws or snaps on and won’t fall off or create a spill if the drink is dropped on the floor of the trolley. Food may not be consumed while on board the trolley.

  6. No person shall bring or carry aboard a trolley any animal not housed in an enclosed animal carrier. The animal carrier must not exceed 19”x 13”x 9” in size, have ventilation on 2 or more sides, and be leak- and escape-proof. Animals must be able to stand up, turn around, and lie down in their carrier.  Service animals with proper documentation (not emotional support animals) are exempt from this policy.


 

Owned and operated by Greenlink, the downtown trolleys are the result of a public-private partnership between Greenlink, the City of Greenville, and the Greenville Drive.
