The Gatlinburg Trolley System announced their trolley rides will be free all summer long. Starting in June, vacationers won’t have to worry about finding parking spots or paying parking toll fees because the trolley routes include all of the most popular attractions and stops in the region.

Running from  June 13 through August 17, the Gatlinburg Trolley system will offer free rides to passengers from 10:00am to 10:30pm.

Since officials expect an increase in summer passengers, the stops will be increased to 40 along the Gatlinburg Parkway for more summer fun throughout the Smoky Mountains.
