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.
