The Ford Lauderdale Air Show (Saturday, May 6 – Sunday, May 7, 2017) is one of the most anticipated events of the year and the Sun Trolley can get you there! Public parking for $20 per car is available at the Galleria Mall. The Sun Trolley’s Beach Link trolleys will be running from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. from Galleria Mall to A1A. To track the trolley’s in real-time, download the Sun Trolley Tracker App on your smartphone. The app will indicate where the trolleys are located along their routes.
ANTICIPATED ROAD CLOSURES:
To accommodate event set-up and breakdown, intermittently road closures will begin on Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. These road closures will reoccur on Friday, May 5, 2017 and Monday, May 8, 2017.
Northbound and southbound State Road A1A will be closed for thru traffic from the north side of Sunrise Blvd intersection to Northeast 14th Court of A1A on Saturday, May 6, 2017 and Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

RIVERWALK WATER TROLLEY:
Water Trolley service will not be affected. This service will operate as scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Road closures will not affect the Beach Link route, but headways will be affected by traffic congestion and as a result, customers will experience longer than usual wait times. We will be providing service as scheduled daily from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The Galt Link route will be affected by the road closure. Instead of using A1A to reach The Galleria Mall, the trolleys will travel on Oakland Park Blvd to Bayview Drive. As a result, the A1A corridor between Oakland Park Blvd and Sunrise Blvd will not receive Sun Trolley service. This modification will especially affect our regular Sun Trolley customers residing along NE 33rd Avenue, as well as the guests of Pelican Grand Beach Resort. The Galt Link service will operate during its normal days/times on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
