  • There will be trolley service from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fat Tuesday, March 5. The service will end early to accommodate the evening parade.
  • Trolley routes may be adjusted and/or canceled due to deteriorating traffic conditions during the high traffic periods of the celebrations.


The trolley is only $1 per person.  Minors accompanied by adults ride free.  Exact change is required to ride, as drivers do not have change.  A transfer between the Downtown and the Seawall Loop is included in the price.

  • Monday through Thursday 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM
