Gville trolley begins rolling again this weekend

Trolley service in Gainesville returns Saturday and will continue until Sept. 7, serving the Dixon and Glenwood/Riverside neighborhoods 5:30-10:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday.


“(Hall Area Transit) HAT is thrilled to share the Gainesville Trolleys transported nearly 19,000 passengers during its second season in 2023 – an increase of almost 100% from its launch year,” said Gainesville-Hall County Community Service Center Director Phillippa Lewis Moss, who oversees HAT.

Soon after the Gainesville Trolleys hit the road, the City will share details surrounding additional routes for spring/summer 2024.

“We are looking forward to continuing this successful offering and connecting even more people to the City’s thriving and vibrant downtown, which has become a popular destination for many in North Georgia,” Moss said. “If you haven’t experienced the Gainesville Trolleys for yourself, or visited Downtown Gainesville for a while, summer’s the perfect time to see what the Gainesville-Hall County community and visitors have been raving about.”

For the Dixon and Glenwood/Riverside routes, the first pick-up will occur at 5:30 p.m. in front of Kilwins (106 Spring St. SE) in the Gainesville Renaissance development on the historic square in downtown Gainesville. The last pick-up will occur at 10:30 p.m. in the same location. Maps containing route details, including stops and turn-by-turn directions, are available below.
