For another summer, the City of Gatlinburg is offering free trolley service to summer visitors along the length of the Parkway during the peak visiting season. Visitors and local residents can board the specifically designated trolleys at numerous stops along the Parkway at no charge. The shuttle service extends from traffic light #1 at the north end of town to traffic light #10 and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The Gatlinburg trolleys see approximately 800,000 patrons annually. It is the fifth-largest mass transit system in the state. The Gatlinburg Trolley originated in 1980 with only six trolleys, but the fleet has grown to 20-plus trolleys servicing approximately 50 miles of trolley routes.
You can 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.
