Sun Trolley Launches Summer Promotion Free Give-a-Ways on the Sun Trolley’s Galt Link

In December 2015, the Sun Trolley’s Galt Link expanded service to the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. Serving thousands of residents and tourists each month, the Sun Trolley’s Galt Link is rewarding its passengers with free give-a-ways.

“Our guests are our greatest asset and we want to show them our appreciation this summer by offering fun surprises,” said Executive Director of the Downtown Fort Lauderdale TMA Robyn Chiarelli.   Once on-board, our drivers provide passengers with various items from umbrellas, to cargo bags, reusable eco water bottles and many other gifts to simply make the journey even more enjoyable.”

Sun Trolley’s summer promotion runs now through September 30, 2016. Give-a-ways are limited to one gift per passenger.

The free Galt Link trolleys transport residents and tourists alike who are looking for transportation alternatives with a charming twist. The route starts at the Galleria Mall and travels northbound to Washington Avenue in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea hitting key destinations such as the Coral Ridge Mall and the Anglin Fishing Pier. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“We are just so pleased to partner with the Sun Trolley,” said Vice Mayor Mark Brown, Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. “Not only does the Sun Trolley help us to move people more efficiently, offerings such as the Galt Link promotion better ensure residents and visitors here in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea have a special and fun experience while visiting our beachside town.”

An interactive map featuring the key stops and destinations, along with the Galt Link schedule are available via http://www.suntrolley.com/galt-link/. From the Sun Trolley’s Galt Link, guests can connect to the free Pelican Hopper, as well as Sun Trolley’s Beach and Las Olas Links. Please note that is $1 per ride or $3 for an all day pass on Sun Trolley’s Beach and Las Olas Links.

Just like hailing a cab, the Sun Trolley is a wave ‘n’ ride service. Just wave to the driver, from any safe location along the route, to signal that you would like to board. When you’re ready to get off, just let the driver know where along the route you would like to be dropped off. To track the trolleys in real-time, download the free Sun Trolley Tracker app on your smartphone.

The Sun Trolley is Marge Melbourne’s Red & Yellow Chauffeur

If it weren’t for the Sun Trolley, I’d still be able to get around on the county bus, but my trips would be less convenient and less safe.

Unlike the county bus, which basically drops you off on the side of the road and leaves you to cross many busy lanes of traffic where cars just zoom right by, the Sun Trolley is much more safe and convenient. It’s almost like having your own personal red and yellow chauffeur.

Sun TrolleyI utilize Sun Trolley’s Galt Ocean Link Route on a regular basis. It takes me right into the Coral Ridge Mall so I can shop at Publix, right to my bank on A1A so I can make a deposit, and right to Holy Cross hospital so I can take a test or get a checkup. It even takes me right to the Fort Lauderdale Beach Community Center where I can play bingo and occasionally talk to the people who run the Sun Trolley, the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association – a nonprofit organization.

As a 76-year-old Floridian, I have to be more careful and the convenience provided by the Sun Trolley helps me do that.

Even the people and the socializing are better on the Sun Trolley.

I see a lot of the friends who ride the Sun Trolley all the time. Even the drivers make it a worthwhile ride by interacting with the riders. They’re very friendly.

It’s a fantastic service we wouldn’t want to lose, but we have to make sure we use it. I keep telling the people who live in my building that – use it or we will lose it. I ride for free but the service is so good, so important to me, I’d be willing to give up some of my limited funds to use it if more money was needed to help run it.

I just hope more of my neighbors realize how great this service is and start riding. Until then, I’ll keep doing my part to get more people to grab a seat on my red and yellow chauffeur.
