free parkway trolley
Visitors to Gatlinburg have an additional means to explore the Parkway via this shuttle route which is free for the summer.
It will be even more convenient to travel through Gatlinburg when the City begins offering free Trolley service to patrons along the length of the Parkway.
The free specially painted open-air shuttles will operate from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily through August 17. 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.
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.
