A new look for Delray’s downtown trolley

Say goodbye to the non-descript  bus–and hello to a brand new trolley system in Delray.

The City of Delray Beach has announced that the Downtown Roundabout shuttle system will be converted from the existing mini-shuttle buses to new, air conditioned trolleys. The new trolley system will continue to offer FREE transportation on Atlantic Avenue, between the Tri-Rail Station and the Municipal Beach, and service is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 1, 2013.

Funding Partnership

Funding to purchase the three new trolleys was provided through a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) grant ($300,000 – which includes operational costs) and the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), $550,000. All of the new trolleys are ADA compliant (American with Disabilities Act) and will provide efficient, comfortable service throughout the downtown area.
