One of the many benefits of staying at the Green Valley Motel is our excellent location on the Parkway near a trolley stop! The Pigeon Forge Trolley offers a convenient and affordable way to get around town so that you don’t have to worry about driving and can focus on the fun! The trolley system has a fleet of over 40 vehicles and transports millions of people each year! Here is everything that you need to know about riding the Pigeon Forge Trolley:
1. Route Information
The Pigeon Forge Trolley offers 6 routes that provide transportation throughout the area, including North Parkway, South Parkway, Dollywood, Dolly’s Splash Country, Gatlinburg Welcome Center and Wears Valley Road. The routes that pass in front of our hotel are the South Parkway and Gatlinburg Welcome Center routes. You can also drive to the Trolley Station in the Old Mill District on Old Mill Drive, which is where all of the routes originate and end. The Gatlinburg Welcome Center route comes in handy when you want to explore Gatlinburg, and the trolley travels non-stop to and from the Gatlinburg Welcome Center on the spur of the city limits. From here, you can connect to the Gatlinburg Trolley that provides transportation throughout the City of Gatlinburg.
2. Fares and Schedules
The Pigeon Forge Trolley operates daily from 8 a.m. to midnight from March through October and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in November and December. The trolley service does not operate on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The fares for the Pigeon Forge Trolley are extremely reasonable and start at just $.50 per ride! It is important to remember that the trolley drivers can only accept the exact fare and cannot make change. Since the fares apply each time that you board the trolley, it may be beneficial to purchase the all day pass if you plan on taking several rides throughout the day. This special pass can only be purchased at the Pigeon Forge Trolley Office and is only valid for use on the Pigeon Forge Trolley. If you have children ages 3 or younger, they can ride the trolley for free!
3. Trolley Stops
There are more than 200 official trolley stops throughout Pigeon Forge, as well as select locations in Gatlinburg and Sevierville! Whether you are heading to Dollywood, The Island in Pigeon Forge, the Titanic Museum or the Hollywood Wax Museum, a trolley is never too far away! Just look for the trolley bear sign or a trolley shelter to find a stop. Note that the time between trolleys can range anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the route, so be sure to plan accordingly.
