Sun Trolley Temporarily Suspends Galt Link

The Sun Trolley’s Galt Link was temporarily suspended for an 18 month period starting Friday, December 1, 2017 to allow the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association and the City of Fort Lauderdale to evaluate the service in order to better meet the transit needs of local neighbors, businesses, and guests.

“Over the next eighteen months, the existing route, as well as different route alignments and service approaches, will be analyzed,” said Robyn Chiarelli, Executive Director of the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association. “The ultimate goal is to meet the unique needs of this community and to make the trolley the first choice when it comes to the transportation options of our neighbors.”

The Sun Trolley’s Galt Link operated along Galt Ocean Drive as far north as Washingtonia Avenue in the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and as far south as the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. Key destinations along this route included the Coral Ridge Mall, Anglin’s Square Fishing Pier, the Galt Ocean Mile Reading Center and the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s Visitor’s Center.

“We hope a revamped Galt Link will be able to serve our residents and senior citizens in the future,” said Steve d’Oliveira, Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Public Information Officer.

New Riverwalk Water Trolley Schedule Fills Afternoon Service Gap

The hours of operation for Fort Lauderdale’s free Riverwalk Water Trolley have changed to Sunday – Wednesday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Thursday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., in order to serve more morning and afternoon riders.

“Data that we have collected over the past few years shows that the new hours of operation will better serve our riders,” said Robyn Chiarelli, Executive Director of the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association, which administers operations of the Riverwalk Water Trolley. “The Riverwalk Water Trolley has certainly become a local favorite, providing service for locals as well as those who are vacationing here, and we want to continuously improve the service so it stays that way!”

The Riverwalk Water Trolley serves approximately 10,000 passengers per month by providing free rides across the New River. The Water Trolley stops at eight different points along the New River: Esplanade Park, Riverfront Plaza, Huizenga Plaza, Laura Ward Riverwalk Plaza, Smoker Park, South Andrews Business District East, South Andrews Business District West, and Tarpon River. To ride the Riverwalk Water Trolley, wait at one of the eight designated stops and a vessel will come by to pick you up.

Guests may download the free Trolley Tracker App on their Apple or Android device so they can track the Water Trolley in real time.
