Save Time and Money by Riding the Gatlinburg Trolley

Probably the best way to get around Gatlinburg is by Trolley.  The town operates the fifth largest mass transit system in Tennessee.  Starting in 1980 with just six vehicles, the  system has expanded to nearly two dozen trolleys. It covers about 50 miles of the area.  And, it's in operation every day of the year!

Next time you're at one of the Gatlinburg Welcome Centers, get your copy of the trolley map.  You can park and ride from there, as many times as you want for just $2 per day (not including tan and pink).  You can also get a trolley map at most of the hotels (especially those featuring a stop), and the city hall.

The trolleys are handicap-accessible as the transit systems is funded by the FTA, city of Gatlinburg, and the DOT.

There are seven routes entailing a total of 100+ stops in Gatlinburg.  Just look for the Trolley street sign. Each is color coded in the following ways...

Yellow - Arts & Crafts Community, operates from April till December

Brown - Great Smoky Mountains National Park, operates from June till October
