Downtown trolleys add to the excitement and enjoyment of Greenville’s Main Street experience. The red and blue open-air trolleys offer a vintage look and feel complete with a cow catcher on the front and wooden bench seats inside. Trolleys seat 35 passengers, are wheelchair accessible, and are equipped with bicycle racks. They also feature a co-pilot seat for tour guides or special guests.

Downtown trolleys are fare free, and operate year-round on Thursdays and Fridays from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. A special trolley route includes stops at the Hughes Main Library and The Children's Museum of the Upstate on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Trolleys also shuttle fans from Greenville County Square to Fluor Field during Greenville Drive home games.
Owned and operated by Greenlink, the downtown trolleys are the result of a public-private partnership between Greenlink, the City of Greenville, South Carolina and The Greenville Drive. Trolleys are not available for private rental.

Trolley Route

Downtown trolleys operate on a fixed-stop system, making a continuous loop from Greenville’s historic West End to the Colonel Elias Earle Historic District in the North Main Street area. To board the trolley along the route, stand near one of the trolley stop signs posted throughout the Central Business District. There are approximately 20 trolley stops along the route.

Parking Options

Greenville County Square serves as a permanent trolley park-and-ride, so trolley passengers can park their cars at no charge and catch the trolley to their favorite downtown destinations. 

Additionally, the Trolley Park and Ride Lot at 106 Augusta Street has a trolley stop adjacent to the parking lot.

You may also park and any City of Greenville operated parking garages. More information can be found here.

Trolley Tracker
The Trolley Tracker app allows users to track the real-time location of Greenville's free trolleys that run up and down Main Street. The app was developed by a volunteer team of programmers from Code for GVL. Use the app to:
  • See the stops along the trolley route
  • Locate the trolleys
  • Estimate walking time to get to a trolley stop

Download the Android app or the Apple (iOS) app.
