The Augusta and Arts West trolley routes, part of Greenlink’s expanded trolley service to tourism-related destinations, will end for the season on Sunday, Oct. 29.
The routes, which began in August, are paid for by city hospitality tax money.
The Augusta route includes Cleveland Park and the Greenville Zoo, popular attractions where parking can get extremely scarce, especially on weekend days when the weather is nice. Traffic on Augusta is a major concern as well.
The Arts West route includes the growing arts and restaurant district in the Village of West Greenville. It also serves the Hampton-Pinckney and Southernside neighborhoods, as well as provide access to Heritage Green, the home of Greenville’s main library and museums.
Using trolleys to lure people to tourist destinations isn’t anything new in Greenville. Trolleys have been a common sight in downtown Greenville since 2006, when the Greenville Drive brought one to shuttle fans that parked at County Square to Fluor Field on game days.
The Augusta and Arts West routes will resume in May 2018.
