Galveston Trolley rolls out 2019 spring & summer hours
As we welcome spring on Galveston Island, the hours of operation for the Galveston trolleys have been set for the 2019 spring and summer season.
During Spring Break, the Galveston Trolleys will operate from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Friday, March 8th to Sunday, March 17th.
Also, beginning Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Galveston Trolleys will return to their peak season hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
As a reminder, the fee to ride is $1 for adults, while minors who are accompanied by adults can ride for free. Riders will need to bring exact change to place in the fare box; drivers do not have the ability to make change for riders. The trolleys pass each stop on the trolley route every 30 minutes. Those interested in utilizing the service can visit the website at www.galvestontrolley.com for a complete list of stops, approximate schedule, and more information about the history of trolleys on the Island.
The City of Galveston will discontinue its fixed-route bus services to and from Pelican Island effective June 14, 2019.
The route is no longer cost effective due to low ridership and passenger demand. Island Transit currently operates two round-trips a day, five days a week to Texas A&M University campus. The route averages about three round-trip passengers per day and some days there are no riders on the Pelican Island portion of the route. Beginning Friday, Route 1, will no longer include Pelican Island.
