Free Trolley Program in Gatlinburg!

As the Great Smoky Mountains National Park enters its summer peak, Gatlinburg has announced its new free Parkway Trolley Program which began on June 27th. The free trolley runs from Traffic Light Number One, which is located near the north end of the town to Light Number 10, located at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Passengers can get to the park for free! The trolley has originated in 1980, with only six cars as a part of the transportation route. It expanded to a 20 plus service with 50 miles of travel routes. Approximately 800,000 visitors use the trolley system annually. The service usually provides a $2 pass that grants unlimited access to the five different trolley routes. The free route will run on a trial basis this summer, daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. through August 14. The trolley handicap accessible.
