Downtown trolleys add to the excitement and enjoyment of Greenville’s Main Street experience. The red and blue open-air trolleys offer a vintage look and feel complete with a cow catcher on the front and wooden bench seats inside. Trolleys seat 35 passengers, are wheelchair accessible, and are equipped with bicycle racks. They also feature a co-pilot seat for tour guides or special guests.
To ensure safety, passengers are restricted to board and exit the trolley at designated trolley stops.
Downtown trolleys are fare free, and operate year-round on Thursdays and Fridays from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. A special trolley route includes stops at the Hughes Main Library and The Children's Museum of the Upstate on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Trolleys also shuttle fans from Greenville County Square to Fluor Field during Greenville Drive home games. Owned and operated by Greenlink, the downtown trolleys are the result of a public-private partnership between Greenlink, the City of Greenville, South Carolina and The Greenville Drive. Trolleys are not available for private rental.
Downtown trolleys operate on a fixed-stop system, making a continuous loop from Greenville’s historic West End to the Colonel Elias Earle Historic District in the North Main Street area. To board the trolley along the route, stand near one of the trolley stop signs posted throughout the Central Business District. There are approximately 20 trolley stops along the route.
The Trolley Tracker app allows users to track the real-time location of Greenville's free trolleys that run up and down Main Street. The app was developed by a volunteer team of programmers from Code for GVL. Use the app to:
