Did you know that Downtown Venice Florida now has a new trolley service? It's true and this new service is entirely FREE! It started operation on February 9th, 2016 and will operate through April. It aims to give added mobility to visitors and residents and also address the issue of parking during peak hours. The trolley stops at many locations on the island including beaches, parking areas, Sharky's & Fins, the fishing pier and the Venice Community Center. You can even ask the driver to stop and let you off at any location along the route and you can also flag it down to pick you up as well! The trolley service is PET FRIENDLY, so bring your furry friends along for the ride. And the best part is, for all that you don't even have to spend a dime! You also have easy access to The Legacy Trail, Venetian Waterway Trail and the new Legacy Park (adjacent the Historic Trail Depot) if you want to ride your bike.
There is a PDF file of the route map with all the stops below. Just scroll down for the link.
The hours of operation for the trolley are Monday - Saturday 10 AM - 6 PM, January - April.
The trolley runs on a 30 minute loop. Here is a list of the stops:
• Venice Community Center under the front drive-through awning (on the half-hour)
• Miami Ave & Nokomis Ave (NW corner)
• Centennial Park next to the Interactive Fountain
• Tampa Ave & Nassau St
• Venice Beach at West end of W Venice Ave
• North Brohard Park in front of pavilion just North of the Venice Fishing Pier / Sharky's
Here is a list of public parking so you can just park and take the trolley:
