The rubber-wheeled trolleys will return on weekends as a fun and convenient way to travel along the Seawall and downtown.

The rubber wheel trolleys will return to operating on their downtown and Seawall routes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The trolleys will continue operating on weekends (Friday-Sunday) throughout April.

The City will then assess April ridership to determine whether or not to extend the trolley days of operation and hours.

The fare for the rubber wheel trolleys is $1 for adults, while minors accompanied by adults ride free.

Drivers are unable to make change so please have the exact fare ready.

The rubber wheel trolleys service both downtown and the Seawall, and routes are available online at galvestontrolley.com.

Note: The rubber wheel trolleys are different from the historic rail trolleys. The rail trolleys have been refurbished and are being tested currently. Once the rail trolleys finish testing and receive certification, the service will resume. We anticipate this could be as early as this summer.

Summer hours (after Memorial Day) are 10am-10pm daily.

The trolleys pass each stop on the trolley route every 30 minutes. You can jump on or jump off anywhere along the routes. Stops will take you from Stewart Beach along the Seawall to Moody Gardens as well as down 25th Street to numerous stops throughout historic Downtown.

Those interested in utilizing the service can go to galvestontrolley.com for a complete list of stops.

The Seawall Route travels between Moody Gardens on the west end to Stewart Beach on the east end and back. Many stops are available along the way. You can transfer to the Downtown Loop at 21st and Seawall.

On the Downtown Loop, the trolley travels between The Strand and the Seawall. North and southbound stops are available on 25th Street, Postoffice Street, 20th Street, and The Strand.

Damaged during Hurricane Ike, the Island’s original vintage Rail Trolleys are being repaired and will soon be traveling the Downtown Loop between The Strand and the Seawall with a connection to the Seawall Loop.
