About the Gatlinburg Trolley

Gatlinburg’s Trolley System is the fifth-largest mass transit system in the state of Tennessee and serves the 4,000 residents and 12 million visitors to the Gatlinburg area on a daily basis.

The Trolley System was established in 1980 with a fleet of six trolleys. Today, there are over 20 Trolleys, which service Gatlinburg and surrounding areas.

Riders can board a Trolley at any stop in the Gatlinburg area for safe and efficient transportation to their destination along each of the two routes which serve the City and the Yellow route which serves the Arts and Crafts Community during specific periods of the year.

Visitors can pick up free trolley maps at each of the Gatlinburg Welcome Center, or download one here. Visitors can also park for no charge at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center and hop aboard the Gatlinburg Trolley for free.
