The City of Gatlinburg Trolley System is currently operating under modified hours and routes due to COVID-19. Please click here for more information.

Gatlinburg’s trolley system is the fifth largest mass transit system in the state of Tennessee. The trolley system was established in 1980 with a fleet of only six trolleys. Gatlinburg now has 20 trolleys servicing approximately 50 miles in and around Gatlinburg and surrounding areas.

To help reduce the language barriers for LEP individuals seeking to utilize the trolley services, the City of Gatlinburg has adopted a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) plan to help make our services more accessible.  Please click here to read the LEP plan.

In addition, we have also developed a route map of our trolley service in Spanish. Please click here to review this route map.

Thanks to a grant previously received, you can view the locations and approximate arrival times at numerous trolley shelters through a global positioning system. To view the locations of the trolleys, please click on the following link: Trolley Locator.

Visitors can pick up free trolley maps at each of the Gatlinburg Welcome Centers. Park your car and hop aboard the Gatlinburg Trolley (all but Tan and Pink routes) unlimited times for only $2.00 per day! The Trolley Pass is available at numerous participating Gatlinburg lodging facilities, Gatlinburg City Hall, as well as the two Gatlinburg Welcome Centers, noted on the front of this schedule/map.


Gatlinburg Mass Transit strives to be ADA and Title VI Compliant. All vehicles within the Transit Fleet are ADA equipped.


The Gatlinburg Mass Transit System receives funding from the Federal Transit Administration, the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the City of Gatlinburg, and through trolley fares. Funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 were also invested in the system.
