Trolley Information

A missing piece of Galveston's charm will be returning this May. While our historic rail trolleys undergo million dollar restorations on each car, four rubber wheel trolleys will be arriving in April of 2017. The rubber wheel trolleys will be used along the rail lines, as well as connecting riders from Stuart Beach to Moody Gardens. Initially, the trolleys will be free to ride.

Once ridership is established, and logistics worked out with hospitality partners to make the service easy to use for both residents and visitors, minimal fees will be established to help fund offering the amenity on the island. After the rail car trolleys are returned to service, the rubber wheel trolleys will be used to connect with the rail cars and move riders from one end of the beach to the other.
